Controversy continues in the realm of acceleration for gifted children. Acceleration is widely accepted and endorsed by experts in the field of talented and gifted education as a viable, valid, and necessary aspect in meeting the needs of intellectually gifted students (Aldrich, 1989; Bolenbaugh, 1980; Brody & Benbow, 1987; Daniel & Cox, 1987; Gohlke, 1979; Huffman, 1983; Kulik & Kulik, 1984; Pollins, 1983). However, it is an objectionable option for many educational policy makers and practitioners in the educational field and in local schools (Southern, Jones, & Fiscus, 1989).
