Further Information about the Poll

The poll report America Agrees: Public Attitudes Towards Gifted Education covers the results of a national survey, completed in 2016, that sought to understand the public’s perception of gifted students in the United States. This poll was designed in collaboration with leaders in the field of gifted education, including the National Association for Gifted Children, and conducted by Benenson Strategy Group and The Winston Group.

The poll report was written by IEA President Elizabeth Jones and Dr. Shelagh A. Gallagher. Additional contributors include: Alan Arkotov of University of Southern California, Dr. Jim Delisle, René Islas formerly of National Association for Gifted Children, Michael Petrilli & Chester Finn of Thomas B. Fordham Institute, Ann Smith of Gifted Support Center, Dr. Amy Shelton of Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth and Adam Umhoefer of American Foundation for Equal Rights.

The poll summary contains helpful information about the state of gifted education in the U.S. and details recommendations for how to communicate about gifted students and advocate for this cause. The goal of this document is to provide a tool for the gifted community, families, teachers and professionals alike to use when advocating for these unique learners.
