I Ain't No Group, I'm Me (Gifted and Talented Educational Program Perspectives).
Parker, Robert H.; Parker, William C.
To effectively address minority educational concerns, educators must understand and be sensitive to minority group students' cultural and social differences. In addressing the unmet educational needs of gifted and talented minority students, they must recognize the fact that minority cultures are "legitimate" and that the influence of these cultures can (and often do) render minority students profoundly different from students in the majority culture. These differences must be considered in educating or counseling minority youth. (Author/EB)
