International Teachers in California Schools


Increasing the percentage of highly qualified teachers in public schools is a priority for California. In this seminar, Lora Bartlett highlights the role overseas trained teachers have played in addressing this goal.

Bartlett presents data on the number and distribution of overseas trained K-12 teachers in California public schools, highlighting their concentration in high poverty districts and schools, and examines the implications of different definitions of teacher qualification, and traces connections between education and immigration policy.

Speakers include:

  • Lora Bartlett, Assistant Professor of Education, University of California, Santa Cruz
