Proposed TALENT Act good for gifted kids

April 18, 2011

‘A new bill before Congress would require states to note when students perform above grade level and report their learning gains as part of state report cards. The TALENT Act would mandate more professional development for teachers in gifted education and would require Title I schools to create plans to better identify minority and disadvantaged students as gifted. “The TALENT Act serves as a wake-up call to our nation and our educational system to recognize this forgotten student population,” said Council for Exceptional Children President Marilyn Friend.’
