Because equitable education for every child is a moral imperative!

Providing an excellent education to every child is truly a personal, ethical, and professional obligation for educators, requiring profound change by organizations and individuals. Recognizing that true change begins from within, this compelling book shows how educators can develop a deeper personal understanding of cultural difference while building healthy schools that honor diversity.

The authors guide readers to greater awareness of their own underlying values, beliefs, and assumptions about difference, whether based on ethnicity, ability, socio-economic status, or sexual orientation. Readers will learn how to better identify and remove barriers to equity in their classrooms, schools, and districts. This resource provides:

An approach to cultural proficiency as a framework for moral action that is grounded in leading thought on ethics and organizational developmentReflective exercises for individual study, group learning, and collaborative workRichly detailed case studies that present challenging dilemmas for critical self-reflection and group discussions

Gain a new perspective on cultural difference while developing a strong framework for ethical decision-making on equity issues!
