Teacher Diversity Coverage

WRAL education reporter Kelly Hinchcliffe received a grant from the Education Writers Association to analyze diversity data in North Carolina's 115 public school districts.

What she found was that while public schools in North Carolina are growing increasingly diverse, the state's teacher workforce remains overwhelmingly white and overwhelmingly female.

Hinchcliffe and WRAL anchor/reporter Lena Tillett produced a two-part multimedia package, "North Carolina's Teacher Diversity Gap." It originally aired and appeared online on Jan. 24 and 25, but the story, and their reporting, continues.
