Keep the Gifted Allotment in Place in House Bill 3

A repeal of the G/T allotment will de-emphasize the importance of gifted education in Texas affecting more than 400,000 students. … Allowing all funding to go through general funding will not assure that gifted education WILL gets its proper funding!! Although HB3 has required districts to provide a gifted program, it has not defined parameters of what is required, nor has it defined how it will be certified. Without required parameters, districts can implement a skeleton program that will not meet the specific needs and requirements for this group of students.
