"As someone who works with children from diverse socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds, I am often reminded that there are no one-size-fits-all solutions to meeting the needs of students and their families. In this book, the authors force us to take inventory of what we believe. Most importantly, we are encouraged to look at ourselves, who we are, and what other ′stuff′ (our personal biases) we bring into our interactions with students and families. Though these sorts of reflections can sometimes be painful, they are necessary if we hope to ensure that we do not become one of the barriers to student success. This, I believe, is an important step in the process of cultural proficiency." Author: James L. Jones, School Counselor Published On: 2009-07-24
"A first-rate book that will challenge readers to analyze their own ethical perspectives regarding issues of equity, diversity, and moral ethics in making the right decisions for schooling all children. The case studies are thought-provoking and will keep you wanting more. They are written in a manner that we can all identify with as educators and leaders." Author: Reyes L. Quezada, Professor, School of Leadership and Education Sciences Published On: 2009-08-04
“This book is a magnificent contribution for advancing change! Indeed, education is capable of transformation when we welcome change in spite of the challenges. The authors have clearly placed their hands on the pulse of real change by highlighting morality. The Cultural Proficient Journey is one that we must all take if we truly care about and have the will to make a difference in the lives of all children. The authors have provided us with a road map for the journey. The rest is up to us.” Author: Ruth S. Johnson, Professor Emeritus of Education Leadership Published On: 2009-08-04

Truth is truth, let it shine we dont need anyone, especially governments and "intellectuals" to tell us how to be. we are good people on our own.
Think that whites are "over-privileged"? That "diversity" requires that you have to think like every other leftist government school bureaucrat, or else? You'll love this book! Hey, you paid for it already, right?
This book is nothing but propaganda for hatred, putting Thought Police in government schools to enforce it. Big Brother High School, here we come!
It doesn't teach "diversity" at all: it threatens teachers and administrators that, if they don't adopt the left-wing party line, they're out of a job.
The only people who read this book (besides analysts like me who follow the decline of public education) read it (or pretend to) because they are forced to or they'll lose their job. Ah, liberty and diversity!
