Sayler, Micheal F.; Brookshire, William K.
Gifted Child Quarterly, v37 n4 p150-54 Fall 1993
This study found that accelerated students (n=365) and students (n=334) in gifted classes had better perceptions of their social relationships and emotional development and fewer behavior problems than did regular students (n=323). The accelerated eighth graders who entered school early or skipped elementary grades did not report social isolation, emotional difficulties, or behavior problems. (Author/DB)
