The Chronicle contains two major articles and several smaller articles concerned with education of the gifted. "Special Educational Services for Gifted Students in Arizona: Description of Programs and Analysis of the Short-Term Impact of the State's Legislative Mandate," by S. Cohn and V. Riccardo, reports on a survey of all Arizona school districts concerning their services for the gifted. Statistics are reported concerning: compliance with the mandate, program longevity, ages of students served, percentage of schools within the district with special programs, program funding, types of programs, enrichment options, identification procedures, and program evaluation. Noted is a doubling in the number of districts reporting having special programs for gifted students. The second article, "PSAP's Summer Residential Program" by Craig Burton, describes the summer program of the Project for the Study of Academic Precocity, which is serving gifted and talented 7th and 8th graders at Arizona State University. Brief articles examine the International Baccalaureate program, a new Arizona law requiring separate mathematical and verbal reasoning scores for identifying gifted students, the role of the community in public education, the Junior Great Book Series, and suggested directories of resources for the gifted and talented.
