Leaving the gifted child behind?

Standard

GiftedMy children attended public school. I attended both public and private schools. I remember switching to public high school because the courses offered were more diverse. I used to feel that the students with learning disabilities and the gifted students were both served well in public education. I worried about the children “in the middle.” With the emphasis on standardized testing, I see a huge shift to giving extra service to the struggling students. This article resonated with me. What about these bright stars of our future?

No Gifted Left Behind

Are we neglecting the next President, Einstein, Bill Gates, Chopin, Picasso…?
