NAGC President-elect, Jonathan Plucker

As a guest on this radio conversation podcast by Joshua Johnson of WAMU in Washington, DC distributed by NPR, NAGC’s President-Elect, Jonathan Plucker,  represents a distinct new voice in the field.

Have a listen and tell me if you hear it as counterpoint, harmony, or even as dissonance in this conversation about giftedness in America.

From Jonathan Plucker’s bio on the NAGC website:

His work defining and studying the excellence gap is part of a larger effort to re-orient the thinking of policymakers and educators toward how to best promote success and high achievement for all children.
