As an organization, NYCoRE is committed to racial and economic equality. NYCoRE’s People of Color group (NYCoRE-PoC) is a group of educators of color who are committed to fighting for social justice in our school system and society, by organizing and mobilizing teachers, developing curriculum, and working with community, parent, and student groups.
At June’s member meeting we will engage in a critical exploration of the “disappearing” of teachers of color in our public schools, a trend
that has increased dramatically in the past eleven years under Mayor Michael Bloomberg. In this presentation, we will share information that aims to illuminate the factors behind the disappearance of Black and Latino teachers and its effects on students, schools and communities. Finally, we will discuss how NYCoRE can collectively work to support teachers of color in our group, increase recruitment and retention of educators of color, and maintain a commitment to anti-racism in our organization.
