Cultural Proficiency book. Lindsey, Kikanza Nuri-Robins. Cultural Proficiency helps us all establish a mindset and worldview for effectively describing and responding to inequities. Its inside-outside approach to leadership is grounded in the assumption that honest introspection is a requirement to leading equity-driven change. What leaders love most is the way Cultural Proficiency lays the groundwork for powerful organizational growth with resources to

This book tells the story of Ventura Unified School District's successful implementation of cultural proficiency, which opened long-closed doors for marginalized students and returned gains on every key success metric. Most importantly, it will empower you to do the same for your school or district. Lindsey, Dr. Kikanza Nuri J. Robins, Raymond D. Cultural proficiency is a mindset and a worldview assumed by a person or an organization for effectively describing, responding to, and planning for issues that arise in diverse environments.

Addressing cultural diversity in schools through the application of cultural proficiency theory to educational settings, this book will be an excellent resource for principals, staff administrators and developers.

Grad school purchase. This book is AMAZING. There is a complimentary journal/workbook type book (green cover) that I plan on ordering as well. In today's society and global community this book is a MUST for anyone who works with any other person, especially educators.

Thank you so much for quick shipping and great book.
This book attempts to cover a serious topic but fails. Rwanda, Kosovo, and 911, are just several reminders of what unchecked cultural conflict can produce. Children in our schools will be killed because of intolerance to their race or sexual orientation and millions harbor lifelong emotional wounds. If you are looking for a book that takes a scholarly approach to this issue, look elsewhere.

The authors of Cultural Proficiency appear to written about whatever came off the top if their collective heads and took far to much liberty in just making stuff up that suits their position (even if it is one that I typically agree with). For a book that purports to be scholarly, not a single empirical study supports the authors position. No evidence is provided that any of the suggestions they offer have validity. Even after three editions, not a single piece of empirical evidence documents that anything in these pages actually works. While the authors do make a number of critical points, so does the UFO community. Without evidence, it's just one person's belief over another's. Our history is paved with horribly hurtful actions done with the best of intentions. We just never bothered to check to see if they worked and neither have Lindsey, Nuri Roberts, and Terrell.

If your going to claim to have the solution to something as important as cultural intolerance, you better be right. We don't have the time, money, or political capitol to do this twice. The old saying of "measure twice, cut once" is extremely applicable. I'm not seeing these authors measuring even once. This feels a bit like academic televangelism. For only $38.63 you too can be healed from the demons of cultural intolerance!

Even if the prescriptions of the book are suspect, you would think a title such as this should at least have solid definitions and historical support for the need for cultural proficiency. Here again, the authors have failed. These definitions provided are not definitions, they are connotative expressions at best. A definition is an exact meaning of word. Words may have multiple definitions under the denotation, but each sub-definition is precise. What we have here are broad generalizations. These could be called colloquialisms or even might even be stretched to be cultural proficiency jargon, but they are by no means definitions. The authors are bound up in the connotation and denotation problem and someone needs to toss in a life preserver and pull them out.

Finally, one must question the validity of cultural proficiency in the 21st century. The authors provide a timeline on pages 8 - 11. Each decade is listed:
1950's Desegregation
1960's Integration
1970's Multiculturalism
1980's Diversity
1990s and 21st Century - Cultural Proficiency.

I do agree that the 90's were about Cultural Proficiency. But the 21st century is something else. For lack of a better word, I'll describe it describe it as Cultural Transmogrification. Transmogrification is the changing of something into something else. The 00's were a time of great cultural morphing around the world, fueled in no small part by the Internet. It's by no means complete, but it is absolutely something under way. Globalization has led to a worldwide exchange of worldviews, products, ideas and cultures. The best Indian food is in England. Tuscany has some killer Chinese food. My local WalMart carries six varieties of Hummus. Every city in the world must by now have a Donor Kebab stand and Gelato shop (likely under the same roof). Yes, there are still marked and pronounced cultural differences, but they are changing quickly, morphing into one. Each generation moves closer to the middle. On the macro scale, we are becoming one global culture faster than the authors of Cultural Proficiency could have ever imagined in 1990. I'm not saying that Cultural Proficiency never exited, but in 2013, to just look for Cultural Proficiency will not be enough. Not for us as global educators and not to prepare our students for the global world they will work in. Cultural Proficiency is dead, long live Cultural Proficiency. As for Cultural Proficiency: A Manual for School Leaders, the world won't be for loss without it and neither will you.
