Contemporary Perspectives on Multicultural Gifted Education

The Contemporary Perspectives on Multicultural Gifted Education book series is designed to provide a home for 21st century scholarship (e.g., conceptual models, theory, practice, measurement, and research) critiquing gifted education and advanced programs (e.g., AP, IB). Proposals should pay close attention to challeng-es and solutions targeting culturally and linguistically diverse students (Black, Hispanic, Native American and certain Asian students) who are under-represented in such programs.

The scope of the series is broad, yet connected by an inter-related set of practices and philosophies under the umbrella of recruitment and retention via equity and advocacy for all students, especially those who lack access to challenging, yet supportive, learning environments. The book series targets all constituents in P-16 educational settings with scholarship aimed at helping them meet the needs of students formally identified as gifted, as well as those who have been overlooked for a variety of reasons.
