Assessing Concerns of Educators of Black Students Identified as Talented and Gifted: A Survey of a Desegregated School District.
Jones-Okpalobi, Martis; Judd, Catherine R.
Pushing Excellence in Pupils (PEP) was established in Dallas to provide instructional services for intermediate level (grades 4-6) black students identified as talented and gifted. This report discusses the descriptive analysis and results of a needs assessment to be used as decision making data for PEP curriculum development. A questionnaire was administered to principals and teachers. Analysis indicated that PEP principals and teachers were mainly concerned with working collaboratively to improve the impact of instruction on students. Findings also indicated that PEP teachers felt they had specific recommendations for improving the PEP curriculum. Typical non-PEP teachers were found to be aware of PEP classes operating in their school buildings but were not concerned with having an active involvement in the PEP project. (Author/MK)
