ESSA │Cultural Competency
In the increasingly diverse school communities across the country there is a growing need for the educator workforce to be culturally and linguistically competent and prepared to serve all students regardless of their cultural or racial/ethnic background. This is an issue many states are working to address in their ESSA planning process. AIR has a growing team of researchers and technical assistance professionals experienced in the identification and implementation of culturally and linguistically competent practices and strategies to increase educator diversity.
