A Policymaker's Guide to Issues in Gifted and Talented Education.
Mitchell, Patricia Bruce, Ed.
The book is intended to help policymakers understand issues involved in gifted and talented education. Initial chapters review the state of the art in state and federal policies toward education of gifted and talented students and outline steps in decisionmaking regarding policy development (determining the framework, making basic decisions, refining and expanding basic policy decisions, and translating policies into action). The succeeding seven papers detail the services provided by the states of California, Connecticut, Idaho, Illinois, North Carolina, Ohio, and Washington. Information in the profiles is organized according to the following topics: state statutory and administrative policy, statistical profile, identification procedures, allocation and distribution of funds, state central services, program standards and current programs, professional preparation, program evaluation, degree of service provision, past and future, and major stimulants for change and growth.
