schema:description"Transforming the Culture of Schools: Yup'ik Eskimo Examples speaks directly to issues of equity and school transformation, and shows how one indigenous minority teachers group engaged in a process of transforming schooling in their community. Documented in one small locale, far-removed from mainstream America, the personal narratives by Yup'ik Eskimo teachers address the very heart of the school reform. The teachers' struggles portray the first in a series of steps through which a group of Yup'ik teachers and university colleagues began a slow process of reconciling cultural differences and conflict between the culture of the school and culture of the community. The story told in this book goes well beyond documenting individual narratives by providing examples and insights for others who are involved in creating culturally responsive education that fundamentally changes the role and relationship of teachers and community to schooling."@en
