In the Netherlands, gifted education has been a topical issue for the last two decades, because teachers seem to be struggling with providing gifted students with fitting education. Another issue in Dutch education is the growing inequity in opportunities to gain access into the higher levels of secondary education between students from families with a high and low socioeconomic status. The aim of this study was to gain insights into the relationship between high intellectual performance, low SES and motivation.
