    Bridging the Gap

    by Nicole Fruge posted October 10, 2012

    A new project is taking a deeper look at the factors contributing to the “teacher-diversity gap.” The organizers of Teach Tomorrow in Oakland, Calif., hope to encourage more adults from a variety of ethnicities and backgrounds to enter the profession—and stay in it. Ramin Rahimian photographed Cicely Day, a 3rd grade teacher at PLACE at Prescott School last week in Oakland. Ms. Day went through the program and became a teacher after studying fashion design and working in child care.
