EDUCATION FOR THE GIFTED IN NEW YORK STATE.
New York State Education Dept., Albany.
A SURVEY OF THE ATTENTION GIVEN TO GIFTED PUPILS IN THE SCHOOLS OF NEW YORK STATE, EXCLUDING SCHOOLS IN THE LARGEST CITIES, REVEALED A NUMBER OF IMPORTANT ITEMS. APPROXIMATELY ONE-HALF OF THE SCHOOL BUILDINGS HAD MADE SPECIAL PROVISIONS FOR THE GIFTED. HOWEVER, FEW SCHOOLS IN DISTRICTS SPENDING LESS THAN $400 PER PUPIL PER YEAR HAD MADE SPECIAL PROVISIONS FOR THE GIFTED. BUILDING SIZE SEEMED TO BE RELATED TO PROVISIONS FOR THE GIFTED. NINETY-TWO PERCENT OF THE SCHOOLS WITH SPECIAL PROVISION FOR THE GIFTED IDENTIFIED THESE PUPILS USING THREE BASES FOR SUCH IDENTIFICATION--INTELLIGENCE QUOTIENTS, ACHIEVEMENT TESTS, AND TEACHERS OPINION. MOST OF THE SCHOOLS WHICH HAD ESTABLISHED SPECIAL PROVISIONS FOR THE GIFTED USED SOME FORM OF ABILITY GROUPING IN GRADES 4 THROUGH 12. FEW SCHOOLS REPORTED THAT THEIR PROGRAMS HAD BEEN IN EFFECT FOR MORE THAN TWENTY-FIVE YEARS. HOWEVER, A SUDDEN GROWTH IN PROGRAMS FOR THE GIFTED BEGAN IN 1957. VERY FEW SCHOOLS HAD ATTEMPTED TO EVALUATE THEIR PROVISIONS FOR THESE PUPILS. THE MOST FREQUENTLY REPORTED PROBLEMS IN PROVIDING FOR THE GIFTED RELATED TO STAFFING, SCHEDULING, MARKETING, AND CURRICULUM DESIGN.
