Talented and Gifted Education Policy. Oregon Series on Talented and Gifted Education.
Haisley, Fay B.; Wilhelmi, George
Part of a 10 booklet series on talented and gifted education, the booklet discusses educational policy for gifted and talented students, focusing on the state of Oregon. The ways in which board members and administrators collaborate to formulate policy for talented and gifted programs are examined, and typical steps in developing a policy are outlined. Some social issues, administrative concerns, trends, and instructional provisions relating to talented and gifted programs are reviewed. The attitudes of Oregonians toward talented and gifted education are examined, along with relevant Oregon state policy, rules, and educational practices (including student rights, parent rights and education, and goal based instruction). Alternatives for student programing considered include mainstreaming, resource rooms, and other options such as alternative schools, independent study, and cluster grouping within regular classes. The social and educational history of talented and gifted education is reviewed. A bibliography, a list of sources of information on the talented and gifted, and some Oregon administrative rules pertaining to talented and gifted children are also included. (DLS)
