Congratulations to our graduate, Liane Regnard, for her most recent achievement. Liane has published her Thesis with You can find the publication, “A Global Perspective: Gifted Learners enlisted in mainstream schools, without the necessary provisions, will be negatively affected beyond their schooling days” in, a platform where academics publish and share their research papers. The abstract can be found below:



From a personal perspective, I have witnessed the detrimental affect mainstream schooling has had on gifted children. This personal perspective has helped to identify that gifted children attending a mainstream school generally results in a low self-esteem, depression or other mental issues, which is often only diagnosed at a later stage in life.

The purpose of this paper is to understand the long-term effects of placing gifted children into mainstream schools without the necessary provisions, as well as to raise awareness of gifted children and to identify possible solutions to ensure a gifted child is not discriminated against and is able to develop wholly to the best of their ability.

This paper covers research from twelve countries scattered across the globe, to try and ensure a global perspective is obtained, and allowing one to take into consideration gifted persons in a multi-cultural and multi-ethnicity environment under different political inferences.

Ideally, this paper will spark an urgency for a more in-depth study over a longer period of time with an excess of a thousand participants spanning at least 100 countries, or alternatively, it should encourage each country to do their own study, and to take remedial action based on it as a matter of urgency.
