The issue of diversity in U.S. K-12 schools requires significant training and experiences for preservice teachers to recognize the importance of students' socio-cultural, religious values, and the influence their cultural background have in their quest to succeed in their educational endeavors. This study provides significant information to teacher educators, policy makers, curriculum and development planners, and future teachers about the need to reform teacher training and multicultural education to make it an integral part of teaching and learning at all levels of education. Hopefully, reforms will create an awareness and special attention to culture as well as the realization that every student grows up in a specific culture.
