National Survey on the State Governance of K12 Gifted and Talented Education. Summary Report.
This report is a summary of responses to a national survey on the state-level governance of K-12 gifted and talented education in all 50 states and was conducted between June and August of 2002. The Tennessee Initiative for Gifted Education Reform conducted the survey to gather information in preparation for state policy and legislative initiatives. The Web-based survey resulted in 114 survey responses from individuals working for state departments of education or colleges, K-12 teachers, and members of state advocacy groups. Survey questions were divided into the following categories: management, identification, services, number of children identified, definition of gifted and talented, dual enrollment, state funding, teacher training, education plans, and protections and accountability. Responses to each question are summarized by state with a map illustrating the responses. Comments on individual questions as well as general comments are also included, keyed by state. (DB)
