Questions asked Leonard Baca in this audio: Professor Baca, can you tell us how you became involved in studying culturally and linguistically diverse exceptional learners? Will you talk a bit about the reason behind classroom teachers' using their students' native languages and connecting those students' culture to the curriculum? It seems that many of the reading materials we have in use today are more reflective of cultural diversity than in the past. And what about family involvement?" Baca is a professor at the University of Colorado, Boulder, and Executive Director of the Bueno Center for Multicultural Education.en
