Description: In this book, Suzanne Donovan and Christopher Cross of the U.S. National Research Council, consider possible contributors to the disproportionate representation of racial and ethnic minority students in GT programs. Discussions include early biological and environmental influences and inequities in opportunities for preschool and K-12 education, as well as the possibilities of bias in the referral and assessment system that leads to placement in special programs.
