Nurturing Nonconformists.
Wallace, Margaret
Educational Leadership, v57 n4 p44-46 Dec 1999-2000
Gifted students, particularly nonathletes or introverts, may suffer feelings of alienation and isolation in school. Geeks and nerds do not hate people, but abhor a school culture that glorifies athletics. Lack of respect for bright nonconformists can lead to emotional problems and underachievement. (MLH)
