The "Quiet Crisis" Continues
Gibbs, Greg K.; Gembar, Sarah E.
Gifted Education remains funded poorly at best. Funding levels have not increased; in fact, levels have decreased since NCLB (No Child Left Behind) legislation. The authors establish a history of funding inadequacies over the past twenty years that represents a leap backwards in support of students with untapped potential. The effort to improve overall test scores and general competencies has overshadowed gifted education. In an effort to be all to everyone an important segment of the population has been largely ignored by funding and instructional efforts. A conscious effort to engage these human resources in necessary to impact our future. These students are students with special needs, special needs that remain unmet.
