In |Excellence Gaps in Education,| Jonathan A. Plucker and Scott J. Peters shine a spotlight on excellence gaps the achievement gaps among subgroups of students performing at the highest levels of achievement. They argue that these significant gaps reflect the existence of a persistent talent underclass in the United States among African American, Hispanic, Native American, and poor students, resulting in an incalculable loss of potential among our fastest-growing populations. Drawing on the latest research and a wide range of national and international data, |Excellence Gaps in Education| has the potential for changing our national conversation about equity and excellence and bringing fresh attention to the needs of high-potential students from underrepresented backgrounds. As a school administrator charged with developing programs for gifted and talented students I am painfully aware of the limited understanding school personnel have regarding the advanced learning needs of this population of students. All school administrators should read this book, especially those needing research-based support for their efforts advocating for academically advanced students. Dina Brulles, director of gifted education, Paradise Valley Unified School District, Arizona Plucker and Peters present a clear road map for leaders in education to increase equity and eliminate excellence gaps based on solid research. M. Rene Islas, executive director, National Association for Gifted Children ||Excellence Gaps in Education| is a must read for all who are interested in the education of high-potential students. The book will be an eye opener for many as they read about the extremely low percentages of children from lower-income backgrounds and children from African-American and Hispanic families who are achieving at advanced levels.| Julia Link Roberts, Mahurin Professor of Gifted Studies, Western Kentucky University Jonathan A. Plucker is the Julian C. Stanley Professor of Talent Development at Johns Hopkins University, with a joint appointment at the university s Center for Talented Youth and School of Education. Scott J. Peters is an associate professor of educational foundations at the University of Wisconsin Whitewater. |
