Abstract:

This book explores the barriers that African American and Latino candidates faced in attempting to become public school teachers in New York from the early 20th century through the end of the 1970s. The author argues that no single institution or policy was to blame for the city's low numbers of nonwhite educators during this period. Instead, she concludes that it was a cumulative effect of discriminatory practices across an entire system of teacher training and selection that created New York's unique lack of racial diversity in its teaching force.
