The Education of Gifted Children: A Case Study.
Canipe, Sharon W.
The paper examines the intergovernmental relationships in policy making for the development of programs for gifted and talented students. A review of studies on provision of programs for gifted children cites inadequate and unevenly distributed services and analyzes the effects of PL 94-142, the Education for All Handicapped Children Act on expanded services to the gifted. The program for gifted students in Charlotte-Mecklenburg, North Carolina, schools is focused upon, including the state law and issues related to racial nondiscrimination. Admission standard changes and their possible racial ramifications are noted. Possible difficulties in providing individualized education programs (IEPs) to gifted students are discussed as is the lack of funds for gifted programing. (CL)
