Diverse Thinking about Diversity
Kaplan, Sandra N.
Gifted Child Today, v36 n4 p269-270 Oct 2013
This article focuses on the concept of diversity in educational decision making. It is noted that the differences that distinguish the needs, interests and abilities are identified by educators. It lists misconceptions resulting from not attending to within-group diversity, and states that a "loss of self" for individual members of cultural, linguistic, economic and academic groups is created due to ignorance of within-group diversity. Comparative examples of within and between diversity are shown in a table.
