Overview

The Challenges Of Educating The Gifted In Rural Areas by Joan D. Lewis

Providing a high standard of education for our rural as well as urban students has been this country's intent, but often we have failed to achieve this goal. A number of factors have made guaranteeing educational equality for all students, regardless of location, more of a work-in-progress than a reality. It is only natural to ask how best to maintain a quality educational program in remote areas where funding is limited by lower population numbers and recruiting experienced teachers is problematic. The Challenges of Educating the Gifted in Rural Areas addresses the challenges and benefits of rural schools, shares how to adapt traditional gifted education programs for rural settings, and identifies and examines the components of a workable, successful collaboration among school administrators, teachers, students, parents, and other supporters from the community.
