Educational Leadership for a Free World: Education for the Talented and for Leadership


by Paul A. Witty - 1956

Educators at all levels of instruction must divest themselves of the belief that gifted students can get along by themselves and that it is undemocratic to offer them educational opportunities suited to their particular needs. We must dispel also the fear sometimes expressed that the gifted may become selfish through special consideration, for "it is precisely this group of individuals of great ability who, in the long run and as a group, will be the least selfish, the least likely to monopolize the good things in this world, and by their inventions and discoveries, by their creative work in the arts, by their contributions to government and social reform, by their activities in all fields, will in the future help humanity in its groping struggle upward toward a better civilization."
