Teach Students What They Don’t Know But Are Ready To Learn

What should the goals of gifted education be?

Perhaps the goals of all education forall children...

“Rather than portray the needs of gifted students as being unique, we suggest weaving them into the general education tapestry. To accomplish this, we would revise the chief goal of gifted education to be the chief goal of all education: to ensure that all students receive the education appropriate for them at any given time by maximizing the match between individual students’ educational experiences with their individual educational needs.”
