The Davidsons, creators of educational software and founders of a nonprofit foundation that helps educate gifted children, offer an absorbing look at how our nation is neglecting children of exceptional intelligence. Egalitarian notions, sparse education funds, and a cultural trend toward anti-intellectualism have combined to put gifted children in a position where schools typically don't meet their needs. The authors concede the difficulty of defining genius and offer guidelines used by various school districts and authorities that have the effect of lowering the bar and offering "enrichment" programs of limited duration that don't begin to address the needs of really gifted children. But the core of this book is the stories of exceptionally bright or talented children forced to endure the routines of regular schools that, while teaching to the lowest common denominator, stifle their enormous potential. The final chapter offers advice to parents on how they can help their children and advocate on their behalf. Vanessa Bush

Top Customer Reviews
It supports parents who are feeling isolated and rejected by the teachers and schools to continue mentoring and finding solutions for their child.
This is a great guide for newcomers to the field of gifted educations--teachers, parents, administrators, policy makers, or anybody remotely interested in the field. The only regret that most readers will have is that the book is not longer.
