Reconsidering the Ambitions and Position of Gifted Education
Persson, Roland S.
Roeper Review, v39 n3 p183-186 2017
This article is a theoretical commentary to Robert J. Sternberg's Active Concerned Citizenship and Ethical Leadership (ACCEL) model as published in the "Roeper Review." Though the proposed model is attractive and a formidable attempt to reform education in a politically and economically turbulent world that all too often ignores ethics and wisdom and increasingly shuns critical thinking, this article focuses on the two equally formidable obstacles to implementing the model, namely, systems inertia and evolutionary dynamics, neither of which is addressed by Sternberg (2017). In conclusion, a suggestion is made for the reevaluation of ambitions and position in the light of what the ACCEL model is proposed to potentially achieve. [For Robert J. Sternberg's article, "ACCEL: A New Model for Identifying the Gifted," see EJ1148989.]
