The lack of teacher diversity in the Kern High School District hurts all of our students. It is hurting students of color who often have teachers who do not understand their life experiences, and it is hurting our white students who leave high school unprepared for the diverse university and work environments of California. Put simply, we cannot succeed as a school district that promotes success for all students until we hire and retain more teachers of color.
