Supporting The Needs Of High-Potential Learners
An estimated 3,000,000 gifted children sit in classrooms across the U.S. today. Because learning styles and levels vary widely, the needs of “smart kids” are far too often overlooked in the logical quest to meet minimum standards. But that begs the question: What is a maximum standard and how can we shift the focus in the U.S.?
For over 50 years, NAGC has worked to increase public awareness about these key questions and to affect positive change.
The 8,000+ members of NAGC work on behalf of these 3,000,000 students who represent a good portion of the oft-heralded “pipeline of talent.” Luis J. Rodriguez, an award-winning author and Chicano activist once said “It is not enough to prepare our children for the world; we also must prepare the world for our children.” We owe it to ourselves and to future generations to help prepare the world of education for gifted students.
Thus, NAGC invests all of its resources to train teachers, encourage parents and educate administrators and policymakers on how to develop and support gifted children and what’s at stake if high-potential learners are not challenged and encouraged.
