A Voice of Reason in the Wilderness
Rogers, Karen B.
Journal for the Education of the Gifted, v26 n4 p314-320 Jun 2003
In this response to Dr. Robinson's essay, the arguments set forth are supported and elaborated upon from this author's personal experiences. Robinson has helped educators reconsider political correctness in order to reshape their vision of what the focus of the field should be. The argument is made that gifted educators must begin once again to lead with their heads instead of their hearts and emotions if the best services are to be provided to the heart of this field: the children themselves. Case studies that illustrate Robinson's statements, both in acknowledgement of the issues on which she has expounded and in trying to arrive at some solution for these issues, are provided.
