The researchers involved in this report developed a set of four principles that educational practitioners, policymakers, and future researchers could use to understand and build on the learning that occurs in the homes and community cultures of diverse students with the hope that the achievement gap between marginalized students and mainstream students can be reduced. There are four parts of this report. Part 1 describes the educational implications of significant changes related to demographics and globalization that are occurring in the United States and around the world. Part 2 describes life-long, life-wide, and life-deep learning and states why these concepts should guide learning inside and outside of schools and other educational institutions. Part 3 focuses on the four principles. Part 4 includes conclusions and recommendations. (36 pages)
