Dr. Donna Y. Ford, a distinguished Professor of Education and Human Ecology and Kirwan Institute Faculty Affiliate at The Ohio State University's College of Education and Human Ecology, stops by Building the Black Educator Pipeline to discuss her research around multicultural gifted education.
Dr. Ford and host Shayna Terrell discuss the one-dimensional view of special education in our schools, and what gets left out of the conversation, as well as how our gifted and talented Black students are often being underserved. She also shares how families can advocate for their children who they think are gifted, and how gifted and talented education can address the "achievement gap."
Listen to the full episode for a powerful discussion on identifying and supporting the genius of our young Black students.
