"CLUB ED: TEACHERS FOR TOMORROW"
The California Teachers' Association is sponsoring a new teacher recruitment program called "CLUB ED: TEACHERS FOR TOMORROW" which targets minority high school students.
Watch for Carlos Santana;s public service announcement about CLUB ED and California's need for teachers of color. "Do you love music?" Santana asks in the 30-second television spot. "Do you love art, books, science? We all love something. Whatever you love, think about teaching it. As a public school teacher, you can have a position of respect in your community. Teachers help change the world. Do something you love.....become a teacher."
According to CTA's latest data, roughly 78 percent of California's public school teachers are Caucasian, 12 percent Latino, and 5 percent African- American....Yet, the overall student population reflects a vastly different ethnic mix: roughly 39 percent Caucasian and 61 percent students of color. California needs an estimated 300,000 new teachers over the next ten years.
