Diversity is the word of the day after the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in Fisher v. University of Texas. On this episode of Know-It-All, we'll take a look at diversity and multiculturalism in education through a different lens - gifted education. What is gifted education and, for purposes of equity, what should it be?

My guest, Dr. Donna Y. Ford, is the author of several books, including Multicultural Gifted Education and the recently-released Recruiting & Retaining Culturally Different Students in Gifted Education. She'll talk to us about seeking and maintaining diversity for K-12 students in gifted and advanced courses.
