The gap between the supply of creatively and intellectually able individuals in America and the demand for the services of highly talented people is constantly widening. Key to the development of provisions for gifted and talented children and youth at the State level will be State department of education personnel directly concerned with such programs. To examine their role, the Commissioner of the U.S. Office of Education called a conference in Washington, D.C., April 16-18, 1962. Departments of education which were represented at the conference by full-time directors of programs for the gifted were those of California, Georgia, Hawaii, Illinois, Minnesota, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Puerto Rico, Texas, and Washington. Material presented in this publication is an outgrowth of the conference and is presented in five sections: (1) Formal addresses given during the conferences; (2) A discussion of selected problems facing a State director of programs for the gifted; (3) An examination of the growth of established State directorships of programs for the gifted; (4) Recommendations of the conferees; and (5) Appendixes which include a directory of State department of education personnel directly concerned with programs or provisions for the gifted, a list of research projects which are supported by the Cooperative Research Branch of the U.S. Office of Education and which are related to the education of the gifted, and bibliographies of State department of education and U.S. Office of Education publications about the gifted. An index is included. (Contains 15 footnotes and 3 tables.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
