Report on the Identification of Diverse Populations in Gifted Programs in Mississippi Submitted to the Mississippi Association for Gifted Children Board of Directors MAGC Task Force: Identification of Diverse Populations among Gifted Children in Mississippi
Anthony, Kenneth; Humble, Alpha S.
Online Submission
In 1998, the Mississippi Association for Gifted Children (MAGC) created a task force to study identification practices in Mississippi. MAGC was concerned about minority under representation in gifted programs. The task force worked to answer the question "Is the implementation of the Mississippi referral to placement process equitable?" Results of the study showed that it is not. The research identified practices that some districts have used to increase minority participation in gifted programs. The study also provided information on the identification practices of Mississippi districts. This information showed that districts are not doing all they can to increase minority participation in gifted programs. Recommendations for identifying and serving more minority students in gifted programs are made based on a study of three districts that have experienced success in identifying minority students.
