Abstract

Changing demographics in the American classroom make it imperative for school health educators to possess the ability to deliver health education in a manner that takes into account students' cultural backgrounds and practices. The purpose of this article is to describe the level of cultural competence among school health educators and to provide some strategies by which these educators can enhance their cultural competency. Findings from this study show that educators have cultural awareness but illustrate the need for more research in this area in order to understand and increase cultural competency among school health educators.
