Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
«From Moscow to Canberra to Brazilia, educators around the world share a concern about the education of the most gifted of their youth. In this thoroughly researched and well-presented study of gifted education programs, Mitchell and Williams provide comparative information, in an organized and articulate manner, about programs and resources devoted to the schooling of the brightest and most talented. It is a timely and needed report.» (Russ S. Hubbard, Eastern Washington University)
«Mitchell and Williams have obtained information from eighty-six different countries and carefully analyzed and synthesized it to give us the first comprehensive picture of what has been happening in gifted education. In recent years there has been so much happening throughout the world that no one could give a comprehensive picture of how things really stand. This book should be a challenge to everyone.» (E. Paul Torrance, Alumni Foundation Distinguished Professor Emeritus, University of Georgia)
