The need to recruit minority candidates to teaching is too often overlooked amidst growing concern over a looming shortage of qualified teachers for U.S. public schools. This article offers evidence for making teacher diversity a central component of teacher quality and examines elements of the teacher quality agenda that discount or limit diversity. It also outlines what the National Education Association, the largest teacher association in the United States, is doing to promote teacher diversity and provides recommendations for programs and polices to recruit a more qualified and diverse teaching force.
