The National Association for Gifted Children (NAGC) and the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC) have jointly developed standards for the review of NAGC. These standards will be presented to the NCATE for adoption. If you are interested in reviewing the program standards and offering suggestions before they are presented for adoption, please click on the URL below. The standards may be accessed at: http://www.nagc.org/index.aspx?id=1512 . These standards were evaluated by teachers enrolled in summer University graduate in the area of gifted education scheduled at the University of Houston. Comments are modified verbatim text. Teachers were asked to select one or more standards and give their professional reaction to the selected standard (s). Some teachers made recommendations such as additions or deletions that would strengthen the standards. Some teacher respondents selected more than one standard in their responses.
