After the Marland Report: Four Decades of Progress?
Jolly, Jennifer L.; Robins, Jennifer H.
Journal for the Education of the Gifted, v39 n2 p132-150 Jun 2016
The release of the Marland Report in 1972 is often described as a watershed moment in the field of gifted education and remains a touchstone for the field today. The report presented the federal government's formal definition of giftedness and outlined the unique learning needs of gifted students and the challenges faced by these students in U.S. schools. This article presents an examination of the goals and outcomes set forth in the Marland Report, the context within which the report evolved, and lessons learned, which can lead to an improved understanding of this legislation and the state of the field today.
