The goal of education is to engage students with appropriately challenging materials, but what is the role of schools when students have different levels of academic aptitude? The dilemma is especially pronounced when there is limited resources to allocate between setting up a gifted curriculum or investing in a special needs programme. Explaining the role schools can play in nurturing gifted and talented students is Dr. Philip Whitehead, an assistant professor of educational leadership and management.
