This publication is an outcome of a conference sponsored by Emory University's Center for Urban Learning/Teaching and Urban Research in Education and Schools.

Grant); (2) "Knowledge, Skills, and Experiences for Teaching Culturally Diverse Learners: A Perspective for Practicing Teachers" (Marilyn Cochran-Smith); (3) "Preparation and Professional Development of Teachers: A Perspective from Two Latinas" (Sonia Nieto and Carmen Rolon); (4) "Teacher Education from an African American Perspective" (Asa G. Hilliard, III); (5) "Caring for the Whole Child: Asian Pacific American Students" (Valerie Ooka Pang); (6) "Preparation and Professional Development of Teachers for Culturally Diverse Schools: Perspectives from the Standards Movement" (Mary Hatwood Futrell and Elaine P.
