In Excellence Gaps in Education, Jonathan A. Plucker and Scott J. Peters shine a spotlight on "excellence gaps"--the achievement gaps among subgroups of students performing at the highest levels of achievement. Much of the focus of recent education reform has been on closing gaps in achievement between students from different racial, ethnic, or socioeconomic backgrounds by bringing all students up to minimum levels of proficiency. Yet issues related to excellence gaps have been largely absent from discussions about how to improve our schools and communities. Plucker and Peters argue that these significant gaps reflect the existence of a persistent talent underclass in the United States among African American, Hispanic, Native American, and poor students, resulting in an incalculable loss of potential among our fastest growing populations.



Drawing on the latest research and a wide range of national and international data, the authors outline the scope of the problem and make the case that excellence gaps should be targeted for elimination. They identify promising interventions for talent development already underway in schools and provide a detailed review of potential strategies, including universal screening, flexible grouping, targeted programs, and psychosocial interventions. Excellence Gaps in Education has the potential for changing our national conversation about equity and excellence and bringing fresh attention to the needs of high-potential students from underrepresented backgrounds.

"As a school administrator charged with developing programs for gifted and talented students I am painfully aware of the limited understanding school personnel have regarding the advanced learning needs of this population of students. All school administrators should read this book, especially those needing research-based support for their efforts advocating for academically advanced students."
--Dina Brulles, director of gifted education, Paradise Valley Unified School District, Arizona

"Plucker and Peters present a clear road map for leaders in education to increase equity and eliminate excellence gaps based on solid research."
--M. Ren? Islas, executive director, National Association for Gifted Children

"Excellence Gaps in Education is a must read for all who are interested in the education of high-potential students. The book will be an eye opener for many as they read about the extremely low percentages of children from lower-income backgrounds and children from African-American and Hispanic families who are achieving at advanced levels."
--Julia Link Roberts, Mahurin Professor of Gifted Studies, Western Kentucky University

Jonathan A. Plucker is the Julian C. Stanley Professor of Talent Development at Johns Hopkins University, with a joint appointment at the university's Center for Talented Youth and School of Education. Scott J. Peters is an associate professor of educational foundations at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater.
