This issue of "Multiple Voices" contains the following articles: (1) "A Self-Study of Diversity: Preservice Teachers' Beliefs Revealed through Classroom Practices" (Donna M. Sobel and others), which presents the results of seven preservice teachers' self-study that reveals ways in which the teachers' beliefs regarding diversity issues were realized in their classroom interactions, practices, and observations; (2) "African American Parents' Involvement in Their Children's Special Education Programs" (Courtney Davis and others), which examines the empirical literature on parental involvement and finds insufficient reporting of sample selection, data collection, and data analysis procedures; (3) "Effects of Failure Free Reading on Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Students with Learning Disabilities" (Grace England and others), which presents findings that indicate using the Failure Free Reading Program improved letter and word identification, word attack skills, and reading comprehension; (4) "Native Americans and Augmentative and Alternative Communication Issues" (Sheela Stuart and Howard P. Parette, Jr.); (5) "The Effects of Multicultural and Bilingual Training on Preservice Teachers' Self-Reported Level of Competence" (Arletha McSwain), which presents findings that indicate participants who received in-class experiences perceived their level of competency to be higher; (6) "Factors Affecting Special Education Services for English Language Learners with Suspected Language Learning Disabilities" (Henriette W. Langdon), which presents a case study of an English language learner who was diagnosed with a language learning disability; and (7) "Educational Reform and Accountability: Implications for African Americans with Exceptionalities" (Festus E.
