The elites are responsible for proposing new ways to foster evolution. The education of the elites is one of the problems that defines if evolution is empowered or inhibited. Because of ideological reasons, many cultures do not foster the education of the gifted and talented. Other cultures, as it is seen in the following excerpt, research to find the best ways to foster their gifted and talented members.

The National Research Center on the Gifted and Talented (NRC/GT)

“The National Research Center on Gifted and Talented (NRC/GT) current 5-year research plan will lead to empirical and descriptive understandings of “what works in gifted education.” This plan requires the integrated study of identification systems, model-based curricula in reading and math, and assessments. The focus of the research study will be to: (a) extend and enhance prior studies by developing a defensible identification system; (b) analyze the effects of curricular units in reading and math on students identified using traditional and expanded criteria; and (c) measure outcomes using extended standards-based assessments, structured performance assessments, or standardized achievement measures. An identification system will be created to be responsive to students from across all cultural groups and from all socioeconomic groups. In the spring of 2008, a talent pool of grade 2 students will be identified using the Iowa Tests of Basic Skills, Cognitive Abilities Test, and teacher rating scales. This talent pool, as well as their classmates, will participate in the math or reading curriculum (randomly assigned at the school level) in grade 3 (2008-2009 academic year). In the spring of 2009, a second group of grade 2 students will be identified using the same criteria, and they will participate in the reading or math curriculum along with their classmates during the 2009-2010 academic year…..”  http://www.gifted.uconn.edu/NRCGT.html
