"I use this book in a doctoral preparation course for teachers, K-12 administrators, county office personnel, and higher education folks. One of the assignments for this course is a cultural autobiography as recommended in this book. This exercise has been powerful. Students are required to write and share their cultural autobiographies in class. The stories shared by students have been amazing. There are stories of students who claim they were not aware or exposed to diversity growing up, and students who are immersed in diversity issues daily. This book is a great guide in helping future school leaders strive to become culturally proficient." (Tony Serna, Assistant Professor 2009-03-11)
