9781412977944: The Cultural Proficiency Journey: Moving Beyond Ethical Barriers Toward Profound School Change


Because equitable education for every child is a moral imperative!

Providing an excellent education to every child is truly a moral imperative, requiring profound change by organizations and individuals. Recognizing that true change begins from within, this compelling book shows how educators can develop a deeper personal understanding of cultural difference and advocate for equitable learning in their classrooms, schools, and districts. Readers will find:

  • An approach to cultural proficiency as a framework for moral action that is grounded in leading thought on ethics and organizational development
  • Reflective exercises for individual study, group learning, and collaborative work
  • Richly detailed case studies that present challenging dilemmas for critical self-reflection and group discussions

About the Author:

Franklin CampbellJones is associate professor of education leadership at Rowan University in Glassboro, New Jersey. He completed six years as a tenured faculty member of education leadership at California State University, Los Angeles. He is a national and international facilitator of organization learning and diversity. His 30-year service in education includes tenure as a high school social science teacher, school administrator, and project director for the State of California.

Brenda CampbellJones, Ph.D, CEO She provides professional development, and technical assistance to school districts throughout the United States. Dr. CampbellJones gives keynote address internationally and nationally on culturally responsiveness in diverse communities. Dr. CampbellJones is published in scholarly and professional journals. She has served as principal of an award winning middle school, teacher, state and national staff development facilitator.

Randall B. Lindsey is emeritus professor at California State University, Los Angeles and has a practice centered on educational consulting and issues related to equity and access. Prior to higher education faculty roles, he served as a junior and senior high school history teacher, a district office administrator for school desegregation, and executive director of a non-profit corporation. All of his experiences have been in working with diverse populations and his area of study is the behavior of white people in multicultural settings. It is his belief and experience that too often white people are observers of multicultural issues rather than personally involved with them. He works with colleagues to design and implement programs for and with schools, law enforcement agencies, and community-based organizations to provide access and achievement. He and his wife and frequent co-author, Delores, are enjoying this phase of life as grandparents, as educators, and in support of just causes that extend the promises of democracy throughout society in authentic ways.

Review:

"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

"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

"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 (08/04/2009)

"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 inventoryof 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 (07/24/2009)"
