RALEIGH, NC (AP) -- Wake County schools are looking for minority teachers The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Monday that the school system is trying to increase the number of minority teachers because the school population is no longer majority white. Superintendent Tony Tata says the current teaching staff is 85 percent Caucasian, 12 percent African American and 3 percent Hispanic. The system has a minority student body of just over 50 percent for the first time this year. Tata says the county has hired 27 new minority teachers in the past two months and more jobs are available. Recruiters from the school system are looking as far west as New Mexico for minority teachers. (Copyright 2011 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)
