Abstract (Summary)

This study analyzes the different beliefs and effective practices of elementary school principals in Dallas, TX, to foster and develop cultural intelligence (CQ) among the students. Through the administration of a free-response questionnaire and the cultural intelligence survey (CQS), the researcher was able to collect and investigates the diverse practices and strategies that educational leaders are implementing at their campuses. He could identify common actions and procedures, such as cultural committees, special schedule adjustments, and professional development. Additionally, statistical tests were run to determine if noteworthy relationships exist between the participants’ CQ levels and their beliefs and practice about cultural intelligence. Significant but negative correlations were found between the variables making the conclusions very interesting and attractive for future research.
