minority teachers

When it comes to hiring minority teachers, several local school districts are struggling. In Buffalo, where the majority of the students are African-American or Hispanic, the majority of teachers are white. On WBFO's Press Pass, Jay Rey of the Buffalo News points out the problem is more acute in some suburbs. One district has just one African-American teacher and a student body that is nearly one-third minority.
