Sparking Change to Promote Equity illuminates the skills and practices gifted and advanced leaders (on the campus and district level) need to encourage and support minoritized student success in todays classrooms. Designed to empower leaders and stakeholders to build a more equitably represented student population within gifted and advanced programs, chapters discuss how incorporating culturally responsive gifted leadership practices open the gateway toward knowing, accepting, and nurturing each student according to what his or her true needs, challenges, and abilities are. In the context of the complexities of todays schools and advanced programs, this book provides the language, strategies, and support needed to put practices in place to mitigate inequity in the field. Whether you are a new, seasoned, or studying equity leader, this book is a must read for all interested in becoming a culturally responsive leader in gifted education.
