Schools sought teachers of color because they said children needed to see successful adults who were black, Hispanic, Asian and American Indian, said Ana Maria Villegas, a professor at Montclair State University in New Jersey who has studied and written about the issue.

Six years ago, schools made a renewed push for black and Hispanic teachers as another way to help bolster learning for minority kids under the federal No Child Left Behind education reforms. Educators are particularly interested in a growing body of research that suggests minorities tend to perform better with teachers of the same race, said Villegas and Greg Johnson, a senior policy analyst for the National Education Association.

Villegas said curbing recruitment could hurt urban schools especially. White educators are not drawn to urban schools, and if they begin teaching there, they often leave quickly, she said.
