Additional Book Details

Three successful superintendents share how to educate all students


The three Latina superintendents who coauthored this book go beyond discussing the issue of equity in education—they live it. These trailblazing women chronicle their childhoods, careers, and challenges and share their vision to transform schools into places of equity and excellence. Through the lens of cultural proficiency, their stories enhance readers’ understanding of:


Barriers to educational opportunity and equity
Conditions that help promote success for underserved students
Ways to leverage culture as an asset
Links between high-quality education for some and excellence for all learners
