Gifted Children and Legal Issues: An Update
A key resource for schools, teachers, parents, and organizations.
Our brightest children are often neglected or even hindered by school structures and policies. This book reports court cases brought against schools since 1991 in areas such as appropriate curriculum, civil rights, home-schooling, and personal injury.
Parents are advised how to seek mediation and due process hearings as effective alternatives to litigation. Policy statements from the National Association for Gifted Children are included, along with addresses of state and national gifted child advocacy organizations and agencies.
