Educators of color, like all educators, face common challenges associated with the profession: depressed salaries, hours outside of the traditional workday, and inadequate supplies.

In this panel, hear from a range of lifelong educators with a variety of vantage points - from the classroom to the superintendent’s cabinet - as they speak on the obstacles faced by Black and brown educators while trying to navigate their careers.
