Synopsis

The Cultural Proficiency Journey Moving Beyond Ethical Barriers Toward Profound School Change by Franklin CampbellJones

Grounded in key research on organizational change, cultural proficiency, and ethics, this book calls on educators to facilitate personal and systemic change that translates into responsible actions in a multicultural society. Through authentic ethical dilemmas for reflection and discussion and richly detailed case studies based on actual school events, the authors provide readers with a deep understanding of cultural proficiency as an ethical and moralistic approach for profound organizational school change.

Reviews

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. -- Ruth S. Johnson, Professor Emeritus of Education Leadership 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. -- Reyes L. Quezada, Professor, School of Leadership and Education Sciences 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. -- James L. Jones, School Counselor Once again the authors have hit a home run! If your school or organization is on the exciting journey toward cultural proficiency, this new volume will prove indispensible. The authors have combined solid foundational research with practical everyday illustrations. This new volume will be required reading for my school's leadership team. If you can manage only one resource on your journey to cultural proficiency, this book is it! -- Ian Jones, Principal
