it has been known for years, that bright teenagers are very good at hiding their brightness to the extent that neither their teachers nor parents guess at the intelligence lurking below that often spotty and unco-operative exterior. some of the brightest of the bunch don't look at all the way we imagine bright people to look nor act the way we would expect them to act.
Rescuing Bright Kids shows people who care, such as teachers and parents, how to stimulate the teenagers in their care, to demonstrate the level at which they are capable of thinking even if they currently do not do well at school. they can then be rescued from the circumstances that caused them to be so bored they retreated inside and, quite often, misbehaved to stimulate themselves.
the typical bright kid who emerges from this gloomy cocoon sometimes surprises everyone with their capabilities and, with the nurturing and stimulation described in Rescuing Bright Kids, can go on to be world beaters in whatever academic field they choose. In fact, they could be the great thinkers of tomorrow!
