Neither Elitism nor Egalitarianism: Gifted Education as a Third Force in American Education.
Sternberg, Robert
Roeper Review, v18 n4 p261-63 Jun 1996
This article contrasts two traditions in American education affecting gifted education: Hamiltonian elitism and Jacksonian egalitarianism. It recommends instead the Jeffersonian tradition of equality of opportunity but not necessarily of outcome. Discussion is in the context of saving funding for gifted education despite the negative impact of recent publications supporting gifted education. (DB)
