Conceptual Framework for a Culturally Relevant and Responsive Educational Model
Maddahian, Ebrahim; Bird, Mara
Online Submission
According to a large number of nationally known educational experts a Culturally Relevant and Responsive Education (CRRE) system is the best alternative to improve not only the academic achievement of all students but also to prepare them for a better social and moral life. CRRE is a comprehensive, research-based, and practical alternative for educating all students especially in culturally diverse urban school districts. The main objectives of this manuscript were to clarify the conceptual and practical meaning of CRRE, to synthesize numerous views of CRRE for educators and educational decision makers, to identify its theoretical and practical domains and components; to provide a flexible framework for practitioners responsible for educational programs and staff development and to design a blueprint for the evaluators interested in examining their prevailing educational practices and programs in light of a culturally relevant and responsive educational model. (Contains 10 tables.)
