Reporter Talks About 'Degrees of Diversity' Series
The WXXI News series, Degrees of Diversity, is the result of a year-long investigative reporting project that explores the wide gap between white teachers and teachers of color in the Rochester and Finger Lakes regions and beyond.
It was reported by Connections host and reporter Evan Dawson and producer Megan Mack.
Here, WXXI’s Morning Edition host Beth Adams sits down with Dawson to talk about the series — and what prompted him to begin looking into this issue.
Degrees of Diversity is funded in part by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
