Powerful Quote on Gifted Children
"It is surprising
that very highly gifted children do not rebel more frequently against the
inappropriate educational provision which is generally made for them. Studies
have repeatedly found that the great majority of highly gifted students are
required to work, in class, at levels several years below their tested
achievement. Underachievement may be imposed on the exceptionally gifted child
through the constraints of an inappropriate and undemanding educational program
or, as often happens, the child may deliberately underachieve in an attempt to
seek peer-group acceptance".
