Answer preview

Based on research conducted about cultural competence in school, the lack of recognition of different cultures and celebrating and incorporating them in the learning environment are the reasons many schools are not culturally competent. The proposed plan focuses on addressing the identified issue at the school with the desired goal of enhancing teamwork and collaboration and improving cultural competence. Cultural competence involves knowing your own culture, other people’s culture, and its impact on learning. Utilizing student culture as a foundation for teaching, expressing high standards, and reorganizing curricula to represent student inclusion improves academic performance.
