We often hear from parents of children with high academic talent how difficult it is to advocate for their children and find the best gifted and talented resources. That's why the latest news of President Obama's proposal to eliminate the only federal program for gifted education is disconcerting. Tough economic times call for some very tough choices. I guess when it comes to education there are no good cuts. Given this latest news, it's more important than ever for parents of gifted kids to know how support their high potential learners.
Curious to hear how budget cuts are affecting gifted and talented programs in your town and state? Are you supplementing your child's education with enrichment programs? Where and how? Please with other parents.
