Census data indicate the United States is one of the most diverse nations in the World, and nowhere is that diversity more evident than in our schools, colleges, and universities (Bedden, Futrell, and Gomez, 2003). African American, Latino, American Indian, and poor children in general continue to achieve below grade level, dropout in much greater numbers, and go to college in much lower proportion than their middle-class and European American peers (Jacobson, 2000). Jacobson also states, "The disproportion between minority and White dropout rates suggests that the educational systems through which these students have passed have failed to address equitably the needs of all those they serve. In theory, if school districts begin to train their educators on diversity and how to educate a diverse population of students, perhaps the United States might see a rise in test scores and a decrease in dropout rates.
