8th Annual Arizona Multicultural Education Conference

Equip & Empower Educators to be The Agents of Transformative Change

The diverse communities that we live in, are reflected in our schools.  Empowered educators help make sense of the societal changes as well as fostering productive sustainability through educational approaches that promote lifelong learning. In brief, the school’s implied and explicit purpose is increasingly seen to be in the education of its people - we suffer in the absence of good education: we prosper in its presence. (Bill Mulford, Leadership for Learning Research Group, 2003).
