Summary
Extending democracy into schools so that every child has the opportunity to achieve is the topic of many books and conversations. The three Latina superintendents who coauthored this book do more than discuss the issue of equity in education--they live it. They grew up affected by it, taught students who needed it, and changed the minds of those who resisted it. These trailblazing women chronicle their childhoods, careers, and challenges and share their vision to transform schools into places of equity and excellence. They use the lens of cultural proficiency to enhance readers' understanding of: (1) Barriers to educational opportunity and equity; (2) Conditions that help promote success for underserved students; (3) Ways to leverage culture as an asset; and (4) Links between high-quality education for some and excellence for all learners. "A Culturally Proficient Society Begins in School" is filled with reflective prompts, self-check protocols, and other tools for deep and meaningful professional learning. Not only do these remarkable women serve as role models for students from all cultures, their success stories are a source of inspiration to all educators who aspire to extend the promises of democracy to every North American student. This book contains the following chapters: (1) The Why of This Book; (2) Pueblo, Kronach, and East Los Angeles: Our Beginnings; (3) Conversations With the Superintendents: The Teacher Years; (4) Conversations With the Superintendents: The Administrator Years; (5) Lessons Learned: Acknowledging Barriers, Recognizing Cultural Assets; (6) Lessons Learned: Cultural Assets Inform Actions; and (7) Developing Your Leadership for Equity Plan. A list of resources, references, and an index are also included. [Foreword by Thelma Melendez de Santa Ana.]
