Two Wrongs and Two Rights: Reason and Responsibility
Robinson, Nancy M.
Journal for the Education of the Gifted, v26 n4 p321-328 Jun 2003
I am honored by the articulate comments of the respondents to the questions raised in the lead paper, "Two Wrongs Do Not Make a Right: Sacrificing the Needs of Gifted Students Does Not Solve Society's Unsolved Problems." These five colleagues have proved themselves to be sensitive to the multiple issues and constituencies involved and highly constructive in their suggestions of steps to be taken to right the wrongs to which I referred. While we may not agree on some of the details (more of this later), we seem, for the most part, to be on the same wavelength.
