"Dr. Lindsey's Manifesto is a call to action for educators to ensure we are creating culturally responsive educational environments to support all learners and teaches us how to authentically engage in the work of educating our wonderfully diverse population."
"Dr. Lindsey makes a clear and passionate case for the need for social justice to be moved to the forefront for all of us. He makes it an imperative for all to move beyond word to actions and to become leaders in setting a equitable future for all."
"This latest book by Randall Lindsey offers educators paths to hope in the new normal following the 2016 elections. Amidst the cacophony of this ‘noise’ he challenges us to surface privilege and entitlements through tools of cultural proficiency in service of all students. All educators owe it to themselves and the children they teach to rise above the ‘noise’ and find the clarity this book offers. "
"The recent adoption of Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), the 2015 reauthorization of ESEA which replaces No Child Left Behind (NCLB), reasserts the federal focus on all students being academically successful. However, attention to addressing the needs of the diversity in America's classrooms has not been mandated, introduced, or discussed.
"A must read for those perplexed with the current political rhetoric. Through an autobiographical approach, Dr. Lindsey brings clarity of purpose and productive action in creating environment where ALL students can be successful."
"Powerful, genuine, personal, and supportive – the author rallies all educators to recognize the cyclical problems by listening to the noise influencing our 21st century classrooms. Using the ‘inside-out approach’ to Cultural Proficiency, educators are encouraged to allow a self-quieting methodology, listen for the current cycle of noise, and rely on the Tools of Cultural Proficiency, specifically the Guiding Principles.
"Powerfully moving! Lindsey provides a stirring appeal to stand on the platform of cultural proficiency to quiet the "noise" for making the change necessary to fully educate each child. We are already able, we simply need to do!"
"The timing of Dr. Lindsey’s “Manifesto” could not be more perfect, or more necessary. It allows us to slow down, re-engage, and reflect on where we have been, where we are now and where we want to go. It pushes against our comfort zones in a way that invites us to explore and challenge our beliefs, while "becoming aware and knowing what you don’t know.” Finally, it reminds us that this is a journey of introspection and continuous growth for educators committed to educating ALL children."
"Now more important than ever, Randall Lindsey provides us the why, what, and how to continually strive to be individually and collectively culturally proficient! Why? We must, as educators, meet our moral imperative to create a socially-just democracy by educating all of our children in all of our schools! What?
"Dr. Randy Lindsey’s latest book is a must read for socially conscious educational leaders who care deeply about the future viability and vitality of their communities as well as the sustainability of our deep democratic ideals and more importantly, a guide for creating meaningful change in both policy and practice that ultimately open doors of opportunity to those students who have traditionally been designated to the margins of success in our schools and society."
"This 'manifesto' is indeed timely and essential. Dr. Lindsey's vast experience as an expert and leader in the field of cultural proficiency reminds us that "now is the time" to acknowledge and address the vast number of diversity, equity, and social justice issues at hand. His hope is my hope... his clarity is all our clarity."
