Callahan, Carolyn M.; Tomlinson, Carol Ann; Reis, Sally N.; Kaplan, Sandra N.
Phi Delta Kappan, v81 n10 p787-90 Jun 2000
Discusses possible reasons for U.S. gifted students' underachievement on the Third International Mathematics and Science Study. Homework, class time, and television viewing are similar elsewhere. Previous learning, negative reform effects, middle-school practices, nonrigorous coursework, curriculum deficiencies, and stress on potential over performance may be factors.
