Building Gifted Education: One State at a Time
Jolly, Jennifer L.
Gifted Child Today, v37 n4 p258-260 Oct 2014
The "Marland" Report was the impetus and structure to provide a more systematic approach to building state and regional gifted programs. One of the strategies used to proliferate the spread of programming for gifted students throughout the states was the National/State Leadership Training Institute on the Gifted and Talented (N/S-LTI-G/T; Jackson, 1979). This article introduces the organization's impact on the growth of gifted education throughout the United States. Despite the many limitations and inadequacies that still exist, the imprint of the N/S-LTI-G/T and those who participated in this work still resonates in many states.
