When you bring up teacher diversity at Cambridge Rindge and Latin High School, the students will be the first to tell you things could be better. Senior Lorra Marseille says she can only think of two teachers of color off the top of her head.
“I’ve had Mr. Dua,” said Marseille. “And then this semester I had Ms. Campbell.”
Schoolwide, the actual number is closer to 40 out of roughly 150.
I met Marseille after school one day. She was one of about 20 kids hanging out in history and psychology teacher Kevin Dua’s room.
