The California Department of Education released a report earlier this year that found that Black male students are less likely to drop out and more likely to attend a university if they have Black teachers. Research like that led CSU Bakersfield to establish the Black Educator Teacher Residency Program to increase teacher diversity in public schools. To learn more about it, Valley Edition Host Kathleen Schock spoke with Dr. Bre Evans-Santiago, chair and assistant professor of teacher education at CSU Bakersfield.

Kathleen Schock is the host of Valley Edition. In the show, Kathleen and the Valley Public Radio news team explore issues that matter to the residents of Central California through engaging conversations and in-depth reporting.
