Addressing Academic and Opportunity Gaps Impacting Gifted Black Males: Implications for School Counselors
Henfield, Malik S.; Washington, Ahmad R.; Byrd, Janice A.
Gifted Child Today, v37 n3 p147-154 Jul 2014
To date, counseling is far behind many other helping professions in terms of producing scholarly literature highlighting and informing gifted Black male students' needs and how to meet them. In particular, very little has been written about opportunity gaps that disproportionately place gifted Black male students at an academic disadvantage. Without such information, school counselors are left with an inadequate or less than comprehensive understanding of the potential issues associated with being Black, male, and identified as a gifted student. Therefore, the purpose of this article is to draw attention to common opportunity gaps in relation to gifted Black male students and ways school counselors can address them in and out of schools.
