Abstract:

The Quintin Pettigrew collection consists of an audiocassette and transcript of an oral history interview conducted between Pettigrew and Kelly Smith during the winter of 1987. Pettigrew began his career in education as an elementary school teacher but eventually became the High Potential Programming Coordinator for the Mankato Public Schools in Mankato, Minnesota. In the interview, Pettigrew discussed the various programs available for gifted students in the Mankato school system, and how the program evolved between 1978 and 1987. Furthermore, he noted the importance of teacher and parent expectations upon the program, the types of courses offered to gifted children, and the detrimental impact of budget cuts.

This oral history interview was conducted as a requirement for a course entitled Current Issues in Public Education at Mankato State University in Mankato, Minnesota.
