This resource demonstrates how school leaders can build capacity by examining data, highlighting relevant issues, and encouraging discussions about narrowing achievement gaps and promoting educational equity for all students.

Culturally Proficient Inquiry provides educators with a self-review process and rubrics to examine why some students are not being educated to their full potential. Using the lens of cultural proficiency, the authors guide practitioners through the process of gathering and analyzing data in order to better serve the needs of historically underserved students. School leaders will discover how to realistically reflect schoolwide cultural and economic diversity and create authentic systemic change in their schools.

"What is best about this remarkable book is its constant reminder that the courage to do what is just and right for the 'underserved' comes to those who face the 'brutal facts,' listen to the difficult questions, and seek support and guidance from the educators in the field. This book is an inspiring companion needed now more than ever."
