A. Many individuals identify the idea of producing a “culturally competent curriculum,” as being key in determining how well students will perform in school. In simple terms, “cultural competence” defines an academic curriculum that speaks to, and integrates, the lived experiences of the student body into a comprehensive, logical, pedagogy that allows students to see themselves, their own worldview and cultural knowledge, as an important part of the academic experience. Some individuals have even gone as far as to state that cultural competence may be only accessed through segregation (Black men teaching Black boys, Christian Women teaching Christian girls, etc.,).
