District 186 Minority Hiring Numbers Still Lag


Nearly 40 years after being placed under a federal desegregation order, Springfield schools remain far short of their goal of having a workforce that reflects the racial makeup of the community. 

 

In fact, the numbers declined in the current fiscal year, with African-Americans making up less than ten-percent of district employees.  The goal is more than 18-percent… reflecting the minority workforce totals in the most recent census. 

 

District officials say budget cuts, teachers union rules and a lack of accountability have contributed to failure to meet the hiring goals.
