dc.description.abstract Underachievement has been the focus of considerable attention in the educational context. This paper investigates the construct of underachievement through a review of the literature on this subject by writers in the field of gifted education. In engaging with literature on the underachievement of gifted and talented students, the reader could be excused for thinking that the problem is of a medical nature, with the dominant discourse being that of diagnosis and treatment, of remedy and cure, of syndromes, prevention and remediation, and even of epidemics. What is the nature of this underachievement ‘epidemic’? en
