West Indian Education

Posted By: Deborah Harrell on September 17, 2003
Have you found any trends in Cultural Diversity with various non dominant cultures from areas less recognized within browner races? For example, Florida has a large Caribbean population. Often, these individuals are grouped with African Americans and their cultural validation is lost completely. Basically white washed.

This has been my personal experience in Florida from teaching and lecturing on assessment and state testing at the Adult Education Center in Palm Beach. Do you have any ideas? I regret I may be the only doctorate that understands this diversity and cultural validation as it relates to motivation and achieving success with passing scores.
