DonorsChoose is committed to supporting diversity, equity, and inclusion in the classroom. To further our goal of enhancing equity in education, we’ve asked teachers to submit submit their race and gender on DonorsChoose through an optional demographic survey.
Why are you collecting teacher demographic data?
We’re collecting teacher demographic information in order to further our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion at DonorsChoose, and the classrooms we serve. Research has shown a link between teacher diversity and student educational outcomes. Specifically, collecting teacher race data on a per-teacher level is one additional way we contribute to the conversation around educational inequity, while supporting teachers of color (and other groups within our teacher base) through funding opportunities.
How will you be using this data?
Demographic information will be used to find ways to better serve our diverse teachers and students, and to address educational inequity that may arise from demographic indicators such as race and gender.
Will this data be publicly accessible?
