Culturally Proficient Inquiry free pdf This book presents a model and tools for collecting and analyzing data, beyond only test scores, that leads to systemic analysis and change that benefits groups that had previously been underserved by the system. It combines the framework of Cultural Proficiency with the process of school audits. Because of the requirements of NCLB, many schools realize that their schools have an achievement gap. This book will help them look at more and better sources than raw test scores such as school conditions and the assumptions and beliefs of the school's educators about the students they serve. As a result of conducting an equity audit, educators will learn what they need to do differently for all students to be successful in their school.
