Chart #13: Critical teach shortages impact student performance on college entrance exams This chart shows the difference in performance on college entrance exams for students who attend a “critical teacher shortage school” and those who do not. The disparity is striking and demonstrates the impact and resulting unfair disparity when qualified teachers are not provided in the classroom.
Chart #14: Black Students and Low-wealth Students more likely to have unqualified teachers This chart shows that low-wealth students and African American students, by substantial margins, are more likely to have unqualified teachers in their classrooms when compared to students who are white or whose family incomes are above the poverty line. This disparity is a nationwide phenomenon.
