Sixty years ago, the landmark Brown versus Board of Education Supreme Court decision brought a legal end to segregation in our nation's public schools. However, in spite of the demise of Jim Crow laws and the "separate but equal" doctrine, our system has all but failed our growing population of children of color. In fact, public schools are more segregated than ever, fewer resources are provided to the disadvantaged students who need them most, and achievement gaps continue to be our status quo. Although most educators now concur that the No Child Left Behind Act of 2002 was failed policy, one of the few positive outcomes was the federal requirement to disaggregate achievement data by race/ethnicity, income level, and linguistic diversity. By engaging in what Corwin author, Ruth Johnson, calls "peeling back the layers of wallpaper to reveal the cracks beneath," a painful truth was revealed: most of our schools suffer from persistent inequities that limit opportunities for large populations of our students. "Cultural Proficiency" addresses these inequities through an "inside-outside" process. Individuals engage in deep self-examination to uncover their beliefs and biases with respect to race, income level, language and other variables of difference. They then turn their attention to "outside" factors such as school and district policies and practices that block opportunities for underserved students and their families. The objective of cultural proficiency is to move individuals, schools, and system along a continuum that ranges from "cultural destructiveness" to cultural proficiency. Corwin has published 15 books on Cultural Proficiency and currently sponsors a complete program including consulting services, national and regional institutes, and a range of digital products. A hallmark feature of Cultural Proficiency books and products is the use of (hypothetical) composite cases that are loosely based on the authors' consulting experiences across North America. The
