Growing Up under Pressure: The Cultural and Religious Context of the Saudi System of Gifted Education
Aljughaiman, Abdullah M.; Grigorenko, Elena L.
Journal for the Education of the Gifted, v36 n3 p307-322 Sep 2013
This essay presents an overview of the system of gifted education in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. To highlight the characteristics of this system, however, its presentation is preceded by a discussion of particular aspects of Saudi society and its general system of education. These aspects distinctly differentiate the general and gifted systems of Saudi education from other educational systems in the world, in spite of these systems' many similarities.
