Summary

This conference on gifted children was called by the U.S. Office of Education to broaden the concept of the gifted to include all areas of giftedness and to bring about some understanding on the part of society of the necessity for nurturing excellence. To reach the high goal of providing quality education, there must be a massive determined educational effort. The task of differentiated education for the gifted is difficult but extremely significant for our society. On the state level, the directors of education must provide a program of orientation, identification of the gifted, flexible organization, understanding of mental abilities, and evaluation. On the national level, the U.S. Office of Education must act as a catalyst to provide a broad program of information, research, action, and trained personnel for gifted students from kindergarten through graduate school. Common problems arise in the statewide direction of programs for gifted children. These problems include terminology, professional preparation, provisions in small schools, pupil placement, school marks, and program evaluation. In the present state systems for educating the gifted, the role of the state director of these programs has been a fluid one. His responsibilities are in the areas of consultation, administration, curriculum, research, public information, training, fiscal management, and others. Recommendations were made at this conference for improvement at both the national and state level. Numerous references are given.
