Education in Northern Ireland: Does It Meet the Needs of Gifted Students?
Gifted Education International, v35 n1 p37-55 Jan 2019
This study focuses on education at primary and secondary level in Northern Ireland and questions whether it meets the needs of gifted students. Gifted students from Mensa were questioned about their experiences in school, and the majority of students stated that they did not have sufficient challenge in school, or any type of differentiation in classes, and the preferred form of differentiation was more demanding work in class, followed by fast-paced classes with older, advanced students.
