Status Report for the Program for the Education of Exceptionally Talented Children, 1969-1970.
Jacobs, Walter R., Jr.
The fifth in a series of annual reports, the status report describes the overall North Carolina Program for Exceptionally Talented Children as instituted by local school units for the school year 1969-1970, evaluating the educational program against predetermined criteria. Statistical data are presented about all known gifted and talented (GT) programs in the state and about those programs administered by the Gifted and Talented Section, Division of Special Education, Department of Public Instruction, which is awarded GT Teacher Allotments by the State Board for assignment to qualifying local units. The report indicates that GT pupil selections were in accordance with public school laws; that the number of GT Teacher Allotments for 1969-70 (240) increased by only one over the previous year; that the gifted curriculum did not appear recognizably different from the general curriculum; and that, despite rapid growth of the GT program in recent years, an estimated 81.3% of pupils eligible for GT programs are not placed in such.
