Rochester Public Schools is the second largest employment in Rochester, but yet only 2% of people of color are in leadership. African American/Black parents also spoke of the lack of teachers of color, staff of color, and administrators of color within RPS. In addition, they noted that there is little consistent effort made to bring in mentors with diverse backgrounds from the community, including individuals from the Mayo Clinic and IBM.
