Jones, Eric D.; Southern, W. Thomas
Gifted Child Quarterly, v36 n2 p112-17 Spr 1992
Interviews with the coordinators of 37 gifted education programs (20 rural and 17 urban) indicated that rural school districts are less likely to use ability grouping or academic acceleration and are more likely to use sporadic extracurricular activities. An earlier survey of 171 teachers also found fewer program options in rural areas. (DB)
