In this article, the writer notes that the fact that different cultures embrace different customs, practices and values is nothing new, but the fact that US schools have become increasingly multicultural environments suggests that these fundamental differences may be playing a role in the performance evaluation process as well. Moreover, the writer maintains that the diverse nature of the American classroom indicates that some teachers are faced with more difficulties in delivering educational services than others, and the highly subjective nature of the performance evaluation process creates some additional challenges as well. These and related issues concerning diversity issues in the nation's schools that tend to affect teacher-staff performance evaluations are discussed further in this article, followed by a summary of the research and salient findings in the conclusion.
