Praise for this Resource
In The Culturally Proficient School, the authors take the reader on a journey of personal reflection and capacity building. This authentic examination of our assumptions and practices creates a necessary, healthy tension to move from simply learning to changing our practices in schools. In a nutshell, an education leader can take this book and create a learning community that aligns the work of adults around a commitment to creating a culturally proficient school that benefits each student.Jeff Ronneberg, Superintendent, Spring Lake Park Schools, MN
