Hiring Teachers of Color

Karen Hynick, MCTC’s dean of education, makes a case for schools to hire teachers of color in a MinnPost article.

“Obviously our demographics are changing. It’s important for students to see teachers who look like them, who can empathize with their life stories,” says Karen Hynick, dean of education at Minneapolis Community and Technical College, where about half of those enrolled in education courses are students of color and many come from poor families.
