Where are the girls? Gender equality in gifted education: why girls are still underrepresented in gifted education

24 februari 2023 - Maaike Goddijn
Girls and boys are equally gifted, yet girls are evidently underrepresented in gifted education. A literature review in ECHA News investigates various barriers to equal access for boys and girls to gifted education and shows that although gender bias appears less pronounced, its influence on the education and lives of gifted girls is still significant. Gifted girls face various potential obstacles that may cause their giftedness to go unidentified and hinder their participation in gifted education.
