Ford, Donna Y.; Harmon, Deborah A.
Journal of Secondary Gifted Education, v12 n3 p141-47 Spr 2001
This article maintains that the underrepresentation of diverse students in gifted education programs is due to a "deficit perspective" about culturally diverse populations. Recommendations include identifying and serving underachievers and low socioeconomic-status students, providing educators and gifted students with multicultural education, and developing home-school partnerships.
