The Desperate Need for Black Teachers. A Special Appeal from John Hope Franklin. [caption title]
Separately issued circular reprinting historian and academic John Hope Franklin’s essay expressing alarm over the “decrease in minorities in the teaching profession…at a time when the American school-age population will be more than 30 percent minority.”
Dr. Franklin’s article first appeared in Change magazine (pp43–44) in the May/June 1987 issue. “It is now painfully clear that teaching, once the bulwark of professional life among black Americans and an important factor in their ongoing educational strivings, is declining in appeal.”
