Abstract

Three key documents are being used for the revision of the NSW Policy for the Education of Gifted and Talented Students and its associated implementation strategies (originally published in 1991). These documents post-date the 1988 report by the Senate Select Committee on the Education of Gifted and Talented Children. The three documents which are the focus of this paper are the Australian Association for the Education of the Gifted and Talented national position paper (1996); the NSW Ministerial paper on the Quality of Teaching (1999); and the 2001 Australian Senate Enquiry report.
