Watch: DonorsChoose Survey Suggests a Path Forward for Recruiting and Retaining Black Male Educators

DonorsChoose and the Center for Black Educator Development Presented at UNCF’s Equity in Education Virtual Learning Series


Last week, DonorsChoose VP, Equity & Impact Kristina “Steen” Joye Lyles and Center for Black Educator Development CEO Sharif El-Mekki shared the results from our co-published survey at the National Network of State Teachers of the Year and UNCF (United Negro College Fund) for the “Equity in Education: Advancing Black Teachers and Parents” Virtual Learning Series. 

During the weeklong symposium, participants engaged in vital conversations about strengthening the Black teacher pipeline from educators, historians, parents, and more. We were honored to be part of this conversation and share how the results of our survey — the largest-ever centering male educators of color — make clear the remarkable impact and the unique burdens of Black male educators. Analysis of these findings suggests a path forward for recruiting, supporting, and retaining Black men as teachers in the classroom.
