NAGC Position Statements & White Papers
Position Statements and White Papers help clarify issues in gifted and talented education and set NAGC's position on these issues.
It is hard to believe that the school year is half over. Holiday break is in the rear view mirror and it is back to the “classroom” for those working with gifted and talented students. NAGC worked hard in 2015 to prepare you for the year ahead, producing new resources, offering ways to engage with the larger community, and increasing the value of membership. In addition to new resources and initiatives, this New Year begins with a milestone in the history of gifted and talented education. Decade long efforts to educate decision makers about the needs of gifted and talented children left their mark with the reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA).
We invite you to explore the latest resources from NAGC below.
A wealth of new releases can be found at the NAGC Online Store. Notable titles include:
