A Discussion of Gifted Education Programs for Charles County (Maryland).
Boyd, Kenneth A.
Discussed is the responsibility of a public school system to provide for the education of gifted children, and evaluated are alternative approaches toward meeting this responsibility. Examined and compared in terms of academic effectiveness, administrative practicability, political acceptability, and economic feasibility are the following approaches: individualized instruction, enrichment, acceleration, separate classes, and separate schools. It is concluded that the homogeneous grouping of gifted children on the basis of their ability in one or more schools for instruction purposes is the optimum approach. (Author/LS)
