  • Reviews in more detail developments in the nine months since my last post on this topic
  • Analyses the guidance document for new applicants, published with a companion press release in March 2018 and
  • Considers the prospects for success this time round.

  1. Hi, I enjoyed your 2012 post on the gifted education landscape in Israel. Do you have a more recent paper on this? I would be most interested to read it. Thanks!
