Shumate to aid in minority teacher recruitment
State Rep. Jabar Shumate, D-Tulsa, has been appointed to the Minority Teacher Recruitment Advisory Committee by House Speaker Chris Benge.
Shumate said it would be an honor to serve on the committee, which oversees the Minority Teacher Recruitment Center.
“I am excited by this appointment,” Shumate, D-Tulsa, said. “The Minority Teacher Recruitment Center was set up to help recruit minority teachers to Oklahoma public schools and I am proud to take part in overseeing its operation. Minority teachers are often role models who inspire students from diverse backgrounds to pursue higher education, so it is very important to increase their numbers in Oklahoma schools.”
The committee is made up of a 19-member panel. Some of the group’s efforts include Leadership, Education and Achievement Program and Future Educators Association.
“This center provides collegiate grants and looks to meet unmet needs in teacher recruitment,” Shumate said. “I look forward to meeting with the committee.”
