It's a throwback episode to our BTBEP live-streaming days with the second ever episode of the Building the Black Educator Pipeline show.
In this episode, Dr. Constance A. Lindsay joined the show to discuss the effect a Black Teacher Pipeline will have on Black student achievement. Dr. Lindsay and host Shayna Terrell discussed how Black teachers can help close the achievement gap for Black students, and what supports are needed to recruit and retain more Black teachers.
Dr. Lindsay’s areas of expertise include teacher quality and diversity, analyzing and closing racial achievement gaps, and adolescent development. Her work has been published in such journals as Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis and Social Science Research. Lindsay received a bachelor’s degree in economics from Duke University and master’s degree in public policy from Georgetown University. Before doctoral study at Northwestern, she was a Presidential Management Fellow at the US Department of Education.
