"A Culturally Proficient Response to LGBT Communities is one of the most authentic books I have ever read on how to be more inclusive and equitable to the LGBT school community.
"With the goal of genuine inclusion and equity for the LGBTQ community, this is a timely and superbly written book for educational leaders striving to support personal transformation and social change in their schools and beyond."
"Culturally proficient persons are urgently needed who will take the initiative to change prejudicial beliefs and educational practices, biased interactions, discrimination, or bullying directed toward anyone in the LGBT or broader community. This text enhances the critical reflection, will, and skills needed to help make cultural democracy a reality for all."
"Cultural competence as a construct requires a commitment to address more than race, ethnicity, gender, disability and socioeconomics. LGBTQ students are often bullied or excluded, are statistically over-represented among teen suicides, and have lower graduation rates overall.
"LGBT students want to be respected and understood as individuals; not just as a member of a demographic group or other impersonal category. Our schools and districts should be a safe, healthy, secure and inclusive environment for all employees and students. We need to ensure that there is a teacher in every classroom who cares that ALL students are treated with respect."
"This book provides essential tools for educators who want to make schools safe and welcoming for all students. Utilizing the conceptual framework of Cultural Proficiency, the authors expertly discuss a case analysis and practical example of one school district delving into providing equity and inclusion for their LGBT community. Throughout the book there are discussion sections and personal reflection opportunities to engage educators in dialogue about school responses to LGBT students - including bullying, adult perceptions, engaging bystanders, and providing resources. The glossar
"The authors of this text apply their proven expertise of the deeply relational notions of Cultural Proficiency to the needs of school children marginalized by homophobia and heterosexism.
