This concluding chapter notes the changes in education for the gifted in the past 25 years and looks to the future. It notes that preceding chapters have demonstrated that the field of gifted and talented education has a rich history of significant accomplishment, has provided a sound body of knowledge to guide education of these students, and has demonstrated that special educational programming produces better learning in these students. Educators are encouraged to utilize the political spirit of the day to promote gifted education, which at the present time requires emphasizing gifted education's role in helping the United States compete in a global economy. Ohioans are congratulated for coming together and developing a long range strategic plan for gifted education. Positive change in gifted education is seen to require people who are bold enough to take the necessary risks. (One reference) (DB)
