In this 12-minute video, award winning filmmaker Marc Smolowitz sits down with five of our nation's most dynamic thought leaders to contemplate one of the key questions that has become central to THE G WORD -- his feature documentary, now in production -- "Who gets to be Gifted in America and Why?" Using social justice and education equity as a frame for these conversations, Smolowitz invites these leading experts to contemplate gifted education alongside issues of race, gender, class and sexual identity, especially in relationship to concepts of the IQ and new ideas around what constitutes intelligence.
