Services Provided to Military Dependents Who Are "Mentally Gifted" in the US Department of Defense (DoDEA) Schools
Bugaj, Stephen J.
Gifted and Talented International, v28 n1-2 p197-206 2013
The US Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) is a federal agency that provides educational services to military dependents in 12 foreign countries, seven states, Cuba, and Puerto Rico. Perhaps due to its restricted audience, the general public has limited knowledge of DoDEA services; moreover, empirical information about these services is missing in conventional data bases. The first purpose of this article was to summarize key essentials about this program in one document and provide the reader with a comprehensive overview of DoDEA's gifted services. The second purpose was to determine the empirical findings of these programs using the built-in evaluative mechanisms of the Research and Evaluations Branch (REB) of the DoDEA.
