NAGC Vision and Plan for Equity and Supporting Social Justice
A Letter from the National Association for Gifted Children
July 14, 2020
On June 5th, the National Association for Gifted Children (NAGC) published a statement denouncing systemic racism and supporting racial justice. Today, on behalf of the NAGC Board of Directors, we share an expanded vision and plan of action to confront systemic racism and advance equity for Black students in gifted education.
The actions in this plan are only the beginning; we share them now to convey NAGC’s commitment to the future. We realize these actions will require changes to NAGC’s traditional models for planning, resource allocation, and leadership development. We are firmly committed to making NAGC a leading catalyst for solutions to systemic and institutionalized racism as the country strives to become a better version of itself.
This is a journey we must take together. On behalf of the NAGC Board of Directors, we look forward to working with you to identify solutions, take action, and enact real, sustained change.
