The Culturally Proficient School: An Implementation Guide for School Leaders Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book provides the practical strategies, tools, and resources school leaders need to fully implement cultural proficiency throughout the organization. Cultural Proficiency enables educators to value diversity, honour it with integrity, and preserve the cultural dignity of their students. Failing this places many of our students at risk of being excluded from the benefits and opportunities of being well educated. Culturally Proficient leaders embrace diversity and respond to it in ways that acknowledge and esteem cultural differences while simultaneously valuing and supporting similarities. Cultural Proficiency enables educators the knowledge and understanding of how to interact effectively with people in their environment who differ from them. Educators have a choice-they can either contribute to the academic achievement gap or challenge and change the conditions that support the inequities that created and perpetuate the gap. This book offers leadership strategies that are sensitive to how and why some children and youth fail in our schools and why others succeed. The authors also address accountability and data-based decision making. </p> <p></p> <p>The five principles of cultural proficiency are:</p> <p>} culture is a predominant force in people's lives</p> <p>} the dominant culture serves people in varying degrees</p> <p>} people have both personal identities and group identities</p> <p>} diversity within cultures is vast and significant</p> <p>} each individual and each group has unique cultural values and needs.</p> <p>.</p> <p></p> <p>Features and benefits:</p> <p></p> <p>} reflective activities for individuals or groups</p> <p>} examples of typical conversations that arise around the issues of diversity, multiculturalism, equity, entitlement, and racism</p> <p>} typical behaviors associated with culturally proficient leadership organized around the responsibilities of school leaders</p> <p>} a rich and detailed case study of a fictionalized school district interwoven throughout the book, providing opportunities for discussion and reflection</p> <p>} professional development activities.

Synopsis:

The authors examine the guiding principles of cultural proficiency, its essential elements, and the self-imposed barriers to moral leadership.

Synopsis:

The case study presents a picture of the reality we have all experienced, while the 'how to' and 'can do' chapters reflect a spirit of optimism and well crafted strategies to help leaders and others to develop cultural proficiency. This is not a simple step-by-step description of assuming attitudes, behaviors, and values advocated by the authors as consisting of cultural proficiency. It is, instead, a work which demands reflection, experimentation, and insight into organizational and personal aspects of associating with one another.-From the Foreword by Flora Ida OrtizThe blend of theory with practical exercises, including reflective activities, allows this book to have a profound impact on the thinking and professional behavior of current and prospective educational leaders.-Michael Dantley, Associate Professor of Educational LeadershipMiami University, Ohio

Meet the educational needs of all students within our diverse society

Leaders need to be responsive to different ethnic, linguistic, and religious subcultures or they will place many students at risk of being excluded from the benefits of a high-quality education. By valuing diversity and preserving the cultural dignity of students, cultural proficiency enables educators to create an inclusive and instructionally powerful learning environment.

The Culturally Proficient School provides the practical strategies, tools, and resources needed to successfully implement cultural proficiency throughout an organization. Providing many opportunities for discussion and contemplation, this book features: Reflective activities for individuals or groups Sample conversations around issues of diversity, multiculturalism, equityentitlement, and racism Typical behaviors associated with culturally proficient leadership organized around the responsibilities of school leaders Professional development activities

By using diversity as an educational resource, cultural proficiency dramatically increases the likelihood that all students will be successful learners. Designed primarily for principals, assistant principals, and other school-based leaders, this innovative field book is a perfect resource for leadership academies.
