MISSINGNESS
Students Missing From Gifted Education Identification: 26% at the Lower Boundary. Grade: Fail. Rank: 17
Nebraska identified 35,778 students as gifted in 2016. Statewide, the number of missing students in schools that do not identify and in schools
that underidentify ranges from 12,271 to 19,419, (26% to 35%) with most of these missing students coming from Title I schools and from
underserved populations. For example, 154 AIAN children are identified, with 453 to 623 (75% to 80%) missing. These numbers are detailed in
Table 7 in the accompanying state report.
SUMMARY
Key Findings and Recommendations
Despite a mandate to identify students with gifts and talents, only 83% of Nebraska’s students attend schools in which identification takes place.
Further, inequity exists between Non-Title I and Title I schools regarding percentage of students identified, with Non-Title I schools identifying
more than double the percentage students identified in Title I schools. RIs by race and locale show underrepresentation of AIAN, Black, and Latinx
students who are identified on average at about half thee rate that would be equitable (0.45, 0.51, 0.49, respectively). These data make it clear that
Nebraska needs to reform policy and procedures concerning access, equity, and identification in gifted education statewide.
Note. A blank indicates there are no students in that setting from this group; a zero indicated that although there are students in this setting none are identified
with gifts and talents. AIAN=American Indian or Alaska Native, NHPI=Native Hawaiian or other Pacific Islander

Gifted Education has a long history of championing
instructional practices that integrate creativity,
innovation, differentiation, and academic vigor. Yet,
in 2020 what was once the cutting edge and the
dominion of the gifted classroom are common
practices in many regular classrooms. If gifted
education is to remain meaningful and relevant, we
need to unite and create clear vision of what we
want the world of tomorrow to hold for us. We need
to peer into the crystal ball and envision a series of
possible futures and outcomes for gifted education.
It doesn’t matter what
you call it.

Grade: Fail. Rank: 17 Nebraska identified 35,778 students as gifted in 2016. Statewide, the number of missing students in schools that do not identify and in schools that underidentify ranges from 12,271 to 19,419, (26% to 35%) with most of these missing students coming from Title I schools and from underserved populations. For example, 154 AIAN children are identified, with 453 to 623 (75% to 80%) missing. These numbers are detailed in Table 7 in the accompanying state report. SUMMARY Key Findings and Recommendations Despite a mandate to identify students with gifts and talents, only 83% of Nebraska’s students attend schools in which identification takes place. Further, inequity exists between Non-Title I and Title I schools regarding percentage of students identified, with Non-Title I schools identifying more than double the percentage students identified in Title I schools. RIs by race and locale show underrepresentation of AIAN, Black, and Latinx students who are identified on average at about half thee rate that would be equitable (0.45, 0.51, 0.49, respectively). These data make it clear that Nebraska needs to reform policy and procedures concerning access, equity, and identification in gifted education statewide. Note. A blank indicates there are no students in that setting from this group; a zero indicated that although there are students in this setting none are identified with gifts and talents.

  • 109. Gifted Education has a long history of championing instructional practices that integrate creativity, innovation, differentiation, and academic vigor. Yet, in 2020 what was once the cutting edge and the dominion of the gifted classroom are common practices in many regular classrooms. If gifted education is to remain meaningful and relevant, we need to unite and create clear vision of what we want the world of tomorrow to hold for us. We need to peer into the crystal ball and envision a series of possible futures and outcomes for gifted education.
