Recruitment & Selection: Diversity

Increasing the diversity of teachers and leaders in the district is an important key to increasing student achievement.  This section includes the research to support HR diversity as well as strategies for increasing diversity.

Organizations need to prioritize intentional integration and inclusivity for their staff in the same way that they currently prioritize test scores, curriculum decisions and student culture.
