2.2.6 Understanding educators perceptions and practices regarding culturally and linguistically diverse gifted learners

Culturally and linguistically diverse students are being denied access to gifted programming in the United States at an alarming rate. While there are many factors that influence student participation in gifted programming, none are as influential as the perceptions and corresponding practices of the educators with whom these students work. This session will share the results and recommendations of an exploratory case study that sought to understand the perceptions and practices of educators at a school in a large urban district.
