Culturally Responsive Leadership in Gifted Education

Saturday, November 11
8:00 AM - 8:30 AM
Location: 211 B

Culturally, linguistically, and ethnically diverse (CLED) student populations remain underrepresented in American gifted education programs. The blame has fallen on teacher deficit views, inequitable identification practices, and differential access to resources. We suggest the solution rests in culturally responsive leadership, which is sympathetic to the cause of appropriate and equitable education for diverse gifted learners.
In this session, we present key findings and recommendations from a comprehensive review of literature on culturally responsive leadership and gifted education. We also share preliminary insights from a study exploring the implementation of a culturally responsive initiative at the district and school level.
