This paper is a review of a study undertaken to evaluate the effectiveness of the school-university partnership program aimed at recruiting and training minority teachers. The project begins with background information that discusses the status of minority teachers in the American educational system. The discussion points out that the supply of minority teachers is low; it also delineates several reasons why it is important that the educational system increase its rates of hiring and retaining minority teachers.

From the Paper:

"The numbers of non-white teachers and education majors in America are well below what might be expected on the basis of population norms (Osler, 1997). This despite the fact that there are several good reasons for expanding the numbers of minority teachers in public schools. First, minority teachers serve as positive role models for non-white students (Brooks, 1987); this is an important consideration in light of the fact that students of color comprise over 74 percent of urban public schools in America's ten most populous cities."
