This presentation focuses on how we can help schools and educators become culturally proficient. The newly released book authored by Mini-Corps alumni and entitled Teaching and Supporting Migrant Children in our Schools: A Culturally Proficient Approach will be introduced as a way to re-instill empathy and social justice into teaching. We will evaluate the level of cultural proficiency where schools, school districts, county offices of education, and migrant programs function as socially just entities.
