For the Sake of the Children.
Corrigan, Stephanie Zweig
Gifted Child Today Magazine, v17 n2 p22-23,30,41 Mar-Apr 1994
The emphasis in gifted programs should be on the interests and needs of the students, rather than on preparing them to perform some social function, such as solving world problems, which require commitment of everyone rather than necessarily requiring intelligence and technology. This approach places unrealistic expectations on gifted students and amounts to exploitation of them. (JDD)
