Civic Academy on Teacher Diversity, Resources for Immigrants

***Transportation is available. Email devin@ocjusticeunited.org for more information*** 

Join us on November 15 to learn more about one of Justice United's key issues: increasing teacher diversity and resources for immigrant students within Orange County Schools. 

Following a presentation by Free Spirit Freedom on the history of African Americans and education in Orange County, Justice United's Jobs and Immigration Action Teams will present potential short term, mid-term, and long term solutions to the issue of teacher diversity and resources for immigrant students. 

Members of the Orange County Schools Board of Education and other school officials have been invited to attend to reaffirm the importance of the issue and to propose a closer working relationship with JU and the community. 

Background

On April 10, in front of 253 Justice United delegates, candidates for the Board of Education pledged to help increase teacher diversity to reflect the diversity of the student body, to hire bi-lingual front office staff in every school, and to assist immigrant students navigating paths to higher education. 

Hiring data from the summer following our action shows no immediate signs of improvement on teacher diversity - underscoring the need for continued work and action on this issue. 

These are BIG goals that will be achieved only through consistent and persistent action. We need your support! Please confirm your attendance today!
