Sample text

As will be discussed in Chapter 11, little has changed in union policies or pronouncements over the past 10 years; however we will examine at this point the situation as it affected the children of this study during the 1980s and early 1990s. Experimental programs for gifted students involving alternative class structures Gifted education in Australia 37 such as full-time self-contained gifted classes, pull-out programs, and acceleration came under vehement and closely organized attack from the unions.

And creating an educational and social environment which will develop that potential into high performance. The system is not, by contrast, looking only for the already motivated achiever. Within the Gagné model a child can be gifted (having unusually high potential) without being talented (displaying unusually high performance). No modern scholar would suggest that we should acknowledge as gifted (or talented) only those persons who possess the very highest levels of intellectual, creative, socioaffective or sensorimotor ability; or those who make the most significant contributions to the common weal.

To defend this approach, however, politicians and bureaucrats responsible for the allocation of educational resources must claim that a child’s innate capacity to learn has little influence on his ultimate academic success. It is no coincidence that in Victoria, one of the states most committed to equality of educational outcomes during the 1980s, the State Premier, Joan Kirner, should have announced, in 1989, that her vision for the future of Victorian education meant recognizing that the major determinants of achievement are social class, race and gender, rather than individual attributes such as diligence, potential or ability (Sheridan, 1989).
