In a time when even the former foremost advocate for gifted children has turned its focus back to achievement and even eminence, where is the place for the gifted child who is not achieving?

Educational research is filled with explanations about the impact of expectations on our students, our children. Yet we have this set of children for whom there were sky high expectations by teachers and parents, but whose response bears no resemblance to the authority figures’ dreams and hopes.

We will spend a little time on the history of the field, but mostly we will look at the kids – and at the long term implications of being a gifted “underachiever.”
