The Department of Education collects information about the number of minority teachers in each district.
It makes for an interesting chart. Note that I used the state median, rather than the average. I often use the average, but didn't in this case, bc it distorted the results. The average is much higher than the median, but tha'ts bc big districts such as Boston have so many teachers.
I was more interested in the results for individual districts, so stuck with the median.
btw: Now that it's posted online, I wish I'd made a change: I should have included more info, such as breakdowns by race, which was available. Oh well, live and learn. Next time.
