National Survey Shows Growth in Gifted/Talented Programs.
Walker, Betty
Results of a survey of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the Department of Defense Dependent Schools on the status of gifted/talented (G/T) programs are summarized. Charts depict the number of pupils in G/T programs, ranking among states, the percentage of public school enrollment and ranking, and the total state fund figures for G/T programs for 1976, 1981, and 1984. Also noted for each state is the existence of state supported summer programs. Other topic areas addressed include the impact of Chapter II funding on gifted programs, the effect of the "Excellence in Education" reports, addition of positions or increased time allotments for state directors, and mandates for G/T programs. It is concluded that despite the unavailability of federal funding for G/T programs, support within the states continues to grow. (CL)
