State of the States Gifted and Talented Education Report, 1994.
Council of State Directors of Programs for the Gifted.
This report on gifted education is based on surveys returned by central education agencies in 49 states, the District of Columbia, Guam, and the Virgin Islands. The first section contains informational charts which provide a broad overview of state level services for gifted students. Included are data on the level of personnel support for the program, whether or not the state has a mandate and what the mandate requires, the number of students served by the program, and the level of financial support for these services. The second part of the report contains narrative information from state and trust territories on topics related to school reform. This section shows the impact that issues such as middle grade reform, site-based decisionmaking, and state education agency reorganization have had and are having on services to gifted students. Finally, the third section contains the names, addresses, and telephone numbers of contact persons at state education agencies and state associations. (DB)
