Diaz, Eva I.
Gifted Child Quarterly, v42 n2 p105-22 Spr 1998
A study explored the self and environmental perceptions of six talented high school students of Puerto Rican descent who were underachieving. The absence of early appropriate academic experiences thwarted students' possibilities of developing their high abilities or talents. A model explaining underachievement and suggestions for meeting students' needs are provided. (Author/CR)
