Summary/Abstract: The present monograph constitutes another instance of discussion concerning selective-stratification function performed by school, in particular its model of educating able students. Part One is centred on an attempt at defining key concepts including: ability, talent, prodigy, from both historical and contemporary perspective. Subsequently, there were analysed such phenomena as labelling able students, and the non-conformity and risky behaviours in a context of creative attitudes. What is more, there were described mechanisms of educational failure which, paradoxically, leads to attaining life success, as illustrated by persons functioning in public sphere. Later on in Part One, the author gave an account of the education systems’ functioning in the school space of England and Poland in relation to able students. Part Two of the monograph is a presentation of the assumed methodology of the author’s own research. It also encompasses the analysis and interpretation of relevant empirical material which was collated in the course of the undertaken research. The conclusions of the monograph pertain to education of able students in Poland and England, accompanied by the implications for pedagogical practice.
