Event Details

America’s low-income students usually lack equal access to our country’s Gifted and Talented programs, yet the resulting inequity remains off-the-radar for many education leaders. On October 29th, we address the so-called “excellence gap” in a public discussion of the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation’s report, Equal Talents, Unequal Opportunities: A Report Card on State Support for Academically Talented Low-Income Students. The Foundation’s report provides a state-by-state analysis of the income-based “excellence gap” and recommendations on how to close it.

The report’s lead author, Jennifer Giancola, will present her key findings and recommendations. Amy Shelton, the Director of Research at the Center for Talented Youth at Johns Hopkins University, and Chester Finn, Distinguished Fellow at the Thomas B. Fordham Institute, will respond based upon their respective national and international research. David Steiner, Director of the Johns Hopkins Institute for Education Policy, will moderate the discussion.
