Lyrics:

Cultural diversity-
In gifted education…
It’s hard to fight that teacher bias
In gifted education

It’s okay Sam, it’s okay Mark,
You just need a role model
You might be underrepresented
But funding is there to help

Cultural diversity-
In gifted education…
It’s hard to fight that testing bias
In gifted education

High IQ score is not the best way to tell
We speak different kinds of English
Nonverbal tests can be pretty cool
And also creativity tests

Cultural diversity-
In gifted education…
It’s hard to fight that uncool stigma
In gifted education

It’s okay Jan, it’s okay Bjork,
You just need a role model
It’s about relationships
And celebrating your diversity

Multiple ways to recruit
Several paths to nomination
Use a series of evaluations to cast a wide net
Explore different learning modalities
Hard to get family support
Support from an adult is key

Cultural diversity-
In gifted education…
It’s hard to fight statistics
In gifted education

It’s okay Jane, it’s okay Shvaineborg
You’ve got mega-resiliency
You might be underrepresented
But funding is there to help
