Gifted and Talented Education in Vermont. Policy Statement of the Vermont State Board of Education.
Vermont State Dept. of Education, Montpelier.
The booklet presents Vermont's policy statements regarding the education of gifted and talented students. Reasons are offered for the lack of appropriate education for this populaton in Vermont, including lack of recognition of the need, and misunderstanding gifted programing as elitist. The current situation in the state is examined and local efforts briefly reviewed. Despite lack of legislation addressing the needs of gifted students, the state has begun to address gifted education through new standards. Growing concern for gifted education is cited. The booklet concludes with a listing of five policy initiatives, including support for intra-district, inter-district, and regional approaches in such areas as transportation systems, curriculum development, and training programs; support for the expansion of preschool screening; and establishment of certification regulations for teachers of gifted and talented.
