The purpose of this study was to determine whether the significance of multicultural teaching practices was sustained and recognized by elementary teachers three years after completion of a graduate level diversity class. Participants consisted of 39 inservice elementary teachers from a Western state. The Personal and Professional Beliefs About Diversity Scales were administered in survey form. Utilizing retrospective pretest methodology, the pre- and posttest were administered simultaneously. Paired sample t-tests comparing means on retrospective pretest with means on the posttest revealed statistically significant differences in both personal and professional scales. The methodology used in this study may assist in indicating the sustained impact of multicultural education courses.
