Where Are They? Gifted Disadvantaged Children in India
Sharma, Jyoti
Gifted Education International, v28 n2 p215-223 May 2012
India is a pluralistic, multicultural, and multilingual society. Cultural differences within India make it impossible to adopt a common approach to the identification of potentially gifted children. We need a program that is locally driven and culturally appropriate to be able to make a real difference in the future life of young potentially able children, so that our neglected best can become culturally excellent achievers. The Ministry of Human Resource Development has taken the wake-up call to bring all marginalized children into an educational "safety net". Preparing a suitable model for "identification" and "nurturance" of potentially gifted children across diverse sociocultural profiles of society is also an area of concern for today's government. (Contains 5 figures and 1 box.)
