This article is interested in education in contexts of cultural diversity and the perspective of educators on their training needs. An ad hoc designed questionnaire was used and a mixed, quantitative and qualitative method was chosen. The questionnaire was applied to a sample of 237 Brazilian educators. The results reveal that attention to cultural diversity plays an important role in educational activity. Educators, as a whole, are sensitive to cultural diversity and its promotion, but the intercultural training received is insufficient. Little family participation is encouraged, resources are scarce and the intercultural dimension lacks pedagogical systematization.
