The move toward greater cultural competency and awareness isn't just happening in urban schools or at the school district level. It's happening in colleges that train teachers.
Twice a week, Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis Professor Monica Medina teaches 60 education students about multicultural learning.
Her class is held at IPS' George Washington Community High School, which has a diverse student population -- about 30 percent Hispanic and 20 percent black.
The college students spend some of their time tutoring children and assisting teachers inside a George Washington classroom.
