Why are there so few African-American children in gifted programs?
from The Atlantic
It's a reality that's rattled the education world for years: Black and Latino students are far less likely than their white and Asian peers to be assigned to gifted-and-talented programs. The odds of getting assigned to such programs are 66 percent lower for black students and 47 percent lower for Latino students than they are for their white counterparts. Given the well-known racial disparities in academic test scores that generally determine enrollment in these programs, the gap may seem inevitable.
