The Gifted and the Future: Why Our Best Are Scarcely Good Enough.
McDermott, W. Basil
Roeper Review, v4 n4 p2-3 Apr-May 1982
The author considers current policy regarding education of the gifted and discusses what he considers to be oversimplified value judgements relating to the relative nature of talent, the defense of privilege that social groups attempt to maintain, and the potential impact of research on how giftedness is defined and thought about.
