Diverse Schools, Diverse Candidates – April 2015

“Boston’s schools provide the opportunity to work with students and staff of different backgrounds… You have to give the most of yourself and are constantly learning,” remarked Morton Pierre-Antoine as he explored open teaching positions. On Monday night, Pierre-Antoine was joined by more than 200 perspective educators gathered in Roxbury to interview with local school leaders. A first in the City, the Boston Public Schools, Boston Charter Alliance, and Catholic Schools Office came together through the Compact to host a diversity career fair for educators of color. As BPS Superintendent John McDonough explained in his welcoming remarks, “our commitment… [is] to ensure that there is an excellent teacher in every school in every classroom every single day.”
