Effective Education for All

Implementing Positive Behavior Support in Early Childhood Through High School


Edited By Chun Zhang, Carlos McCray and Su-Je Cho

Effective Education for All deals with cultural-linguistic diversity and how to work in classrooms with culturally and linguistically diverse (CLD) students. It is essential reading for teachers, administrators, parents of CLD students, and policy makers if we are to continue to see progress and success from our graduates. This book is both practical and helpful for educators and their schools in offering Positive Behavior Support (PBS), illustrating key steps in understanding the problem and research on cultural-linguistic diversity. The authors offer resources to help educators and their families to understand the failures and successes with these students within the context of their particular schools and communities. What works with one group and age cohort may change as students develop within local and regional contexts.

We all have gone through many barriers and challenges in our lives in order to achieve the American dream we each have in our mind. Having a strong support system will enable and empower us to accomplish our dreams. My accomplishments have been the result of the inspiration and support from those who have shown confidence and love for me. Here, I want to acknowledge the support from my mom, a strong role model and my hero; and my dad who always shares his pride about me; my husband, Yan Liu, who encourages me to do greater things for myself and profession; and my daughter, Tina Liu, who continues to inspire me with her perspectives of work, life, and Christianity.

First, I would like to acknowledge my mother and father, Willie and Joyce McCray, whose unyielding support continue to make such endeavors like this possible. I will always cherish their love.

Second, I would like to thank Floyd, D. Beachum, Bruce S. Cooper, Dean James Hennessy, Sheldon Marcus, Gerald Cattaro, Dean Michael E. Dantley, Jeff Brooks, Linda Tillman, Ira Bogotch, and Festus Obiakor for their professional support over the years. You have truly made a difference in a scholar’s life.

I would also, like to dedicate this book to Fayth Bryant, Caitlyn Copeland, Alana Melton, Corinne Barnett, Isaiah Wright, and Dailyn Raphael Smith. I hope they look upon this work as they get older...
