My family supports GT education because gifted students come from all cultural and economic backgrounds. Public schools have a duty to meet the needs of every student, including high ability students. When districts don’t have strong gifted programs, GT parents with resources are forced to put their children in private school or to try homeschooling. Where does that leave children who don’t have those options? GT educators work so that all children with advanced educational needs are able to learn in school – including children from ALL backgrounds and income levels.
