Abstract

Given the rapid decline of teachers and school leaders after the Brown v. Board of Education decision, there has been an increased conversation on diversifying the educator workforce. Furthermore, little is known about the preparation of human resource officers (HROs) who share responsibility for teacher candidate selection and hiring. This study focuses on 12 HROs’ views on how their formal education prepared them to hire a diverse educator workforce. Findings suggest that HROs did not receive adequate training in their educational leadership program on workforce diversity and hiring. This study provides implications for educational leadership programs that train school-based HROs.
