“Still A Worst Problem,” or More on the Diversity Baseline Survey

diversity102-logo-e1426107884357From the Lee & Low Blog:

Since its release, the Diversity Baseline Survey (DBS) has become the most visited blog post we have ever produced. The DBS has been widely read and written about, and has opened up a renewed interest in how to improve staff diversity in the publishing industry.

If surveys and statistics aren’t your thing, maybe this post on the We Read Diverse Books site will make more sense. An eight-year old reader writes:

Furthermore it’s still a worst problem because in the Scholastic catalog, we found out that there was 100 books and there was seven diverse books and ninety-three books of white characters!

There. What a voice that is! I hope someone’s listening.
