Access Denied/System Failure: Access, Equity, and Missingness in Gifted Education Status and Solutions 

Presenters: Marcia Gentry and Gilman Whiting

Underrepresentation of students who are Black, Latinx, American Indian/Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander, learning the English language, and who come from low-income families is a pervasive and longstanding problem in gifted education. In the Access Denied/System Failure report, access to, equity in, and missingness from gifted education is examined nationally, by state, locale, and school Title I status, with report cards for each state. Then solutions are explored to address inequities.

In this two-day, two session 90-minute workshop.  You will walk away with an understanding of the problem of access, equity, and missingness nationally, and within their own states, schools and districts. You will have solutions based on research-based, promising practices from contemporary scholars and practitioners, on developing equitable and inclusive gifted education services including programming that works with underserved students, staff development, developing culturally competent teachers, discovering and developing talents among diverse students, attracting culturally diverse teachers, working with ELL students, and equitable identification practices.

Participants of all experience levels and in any role in education are welcome.

Cancellation Policy: A $10 cancellation fee will be assessed on written cancellations received by April 22, 2021. No refunds provided on or after April 23, 2021.
