Research shows that teachers of color help close the achievement gaps for students of color and are highly rated by students of all races.

"Increasing teacher diversity is a very important strategy for improving learning for students of color and for closing achievement gaps. While White students also benefit by learning from teachers of color, the impact is especially significant for students of color, who have higher test scores, are more likely to graduate high school, and more likely to succeed in college when they have had teachers of color who serve as role models and support their attachment to school and learning. Students with racially diverse teachers also have fewer unexcused absences and are less likely to be chronically absent."
