Parents of gifted students have often experienced the frustration of trying to get an appropriate education for their children in public and private schools. Teachers have equally experienced the frustration of trying to educate these students due to often-competing classroom demands.

Over the past two decades, Rosemary Callard-Szulgit has accumulated well over one thousand questions asked by parents in her gifted parenting classes, her graduate students of gifted education, education colleagues, and gifted students themselves. This user-friendly book offers commonsense and educationally informative answers to the questions and dilemmas that parents and teachers seek. It will be of interest to all who are looking for a fair and equitable education for the gifted.
