This article addresses an ongoing problem in gifted education: How severe is under-representation among Black and Hispanic students in gifted education nationally and in school districts and buildings? The degree of severity that is accepted, tolerated, or rejected depends on whether one adopts an equality or equity philosophy and associated practices. The author offers 10 recommendations for equitable change regarding eliminating barriers to recruiting and retaining Black and Hispanic students in gifted education.
