My post, Shunning gifted Students in America—Isn’t it Time to Pay Attention? generated a lot of conversation. Many are worried about how to serve these students in public school.
So when I ran across this research today out of Vanderbilt University, I jumped for joy! Dr. David Lubinski and his co-authors, Harrison J. Kell and Camilla P. Benbow, have been paying attention. Their study “Who Rises to the Top?” has been published by Psychological Science (you can read the whole study incorporated into the link below), and covers 30 years studying gifted and talented students.
It is all here. So I am going to get out of the way and let you hear and read about this important work concerning the needs of gifted children.
