Episode Description:

This is part 1 of a 60-minute program.

With ever increasing cultural diversity in our schools, how do educators establish and maintain effective relationships with those whose experiences and beliefs differ from their own?

Dr. Darryle Craig, Coordinator of Family Partnerships for Fairfax County Public Schools, presents her ideas and strategies for becoming "Culturally Competent.” According to Dr. Craig—cultural competency is “the ability to interact effectively with people from different cultures.”

During the program, Dr. Craig defines and examines the importance of cultural competence. Using first-hand examples and questions from the studio audience, Craig advises how to use this important skill to help close the achievement gap, and promote best practices that create success among diverse learners.

A facilitator's handbook and a participant's workbook are available on the Fairfax Network website at
