How does a teacher's race affect which students get to be identified as gifted?
from The Washington Post
Black students are more likely to be identified as "gifted" when they attend schools with higher proportions of black teachers, according to a new study, and Latino students are more likely to be called gifted when they go to schools with more Latino teachers. The study doesn't get at why there is such a correlation, but it adds another layer to a long-simmering debate about why black and Latino children are less likely to be called "gifted" than their white and Asian peers.
