McCullum, Director Institute for Leadership and Diversity in Education, University of Oregon

"Culturally Proficient Instruction, Second Edition, enables educators to act on the proposition that all children can learn, and suggests knowable ways by which to achieve that goal.

Crew, Superintendent Miami-Dade County Public Schools, FL
