For several years, our schools have been comprised of primarily students of color. The percentage of students of color is increasing. However, our teaching force remains stubbornly White, mainly White females, with a little change being projected. The tension and injustices between this primarily white teaching force and our students of color cannot be denied. Achievement gaps, underachievement, special education underrepresentation, disciplinary over-representation, and gifted education underrepresentation existent far too many schools. Ample data indicate that culturally competent educators can reverse these negative patterns/trends. Theories, models, strategies, and resources are shared to guide educators into becoming culturally competent educators – anti-racist, equity-minded, advocacy-oriented – and dispositions, knowledge, and skills.
Participants will become (more) familiar with models and theories that improve cultural competence and decrease or eliminate racial prejudice and discrimination.
