Teacher Diversity on Long Island

Newsday

Sociology Professor William Mangino and Larry Levy, executive dean of Hofstra’s National Center for Suburban Studies, released a new study, Teacher Diversity in Long Island’s Public Schools, examining the lack of teacher diversity compared to increasing student diversity in Long Island public schools.

Newsday published two pieces citing Mangino and Levy’s study. The first entitled, “Study spotlights lack of teacher diversity on LI,” called for greater diversity in hiring teachers. The second, entitled “Educators place onus on Long Island school boards to improve staff diversity” highlighted responses from Long Island educators, including Hofstra’s own Alan Singer, a professor in the School of Education and an expert on public education issues.

The study reviewed student and faculty records gathered by the New York State Education Department from 642 public school buildings in the region over 10 years ending with the 2016-17 academic year.
