Abstract/ Summary

Gifted students in rural schools report just as many opportunities to participate in enriching extracurricular activities as their suburban counterparts, but there is a large range of availability among rural schools. Rural students in schools without gifted programs tend to have fewer other options for activities than do their rural peers in schools with gifted education programs. The conclusions were reached by researchers in Maine and Virginia who conducted studies to examine differences in opportunities and resources for middle level gifted students.
