Impact/Learning Brief

Drawing from an NTC study that investigated 21 teachers of color over five years from preparation through four years of teaching in high-need California schools serving low-income and high-minority student populations, this Research Brief addresses:

  • what factors impact retention and attrition of new teachers of color;
  • what factors support new teachers of color to develop and implement practices that address the needs of culturally and linguistically diverse students.

Findings highlight the significance of four organizational contexts critical for new teachers of color: professional cultures, culturally relevant practices, community relations, and accountability responses.
