Secondary-Post Secondary Education of Gifted and Talented Students.
Rader, John; Richardson, Glenna
Presented is a summary of a 3 day 1977 conference on secondary and postsecondary education for gifted and talented (G/T) students. The specific objective of the conference was the identification of key issues. Four major areas of concern were addressed by participants (sample recommendations in parentheses): administration (guidelines and personnel should be available from the State Department of Public Instruction, teacher training institutions should be encouraged to prepare teachers to educate G/T students, schools should encourage students to participate in advanced courses without the threat of falure, and flexible scheduling should be considered); funding (some funding for G/T students without reference to need should be established as a way of recognizing superior performance and local industry and professions should be encouraged to consider financial support of G/T programs); information dissemination and communication (a statewide committee should be developed to formulate policy); and guidance (care should be exercised in the identification process and support should be provided for the social-emotional aspects of the student's life).
