They may not be. Einstein was far from "the best and the brightest" in his schooldays.

This is no excuse to ignore the needs of those who do well.

Neither is it an excuse to dismiss the merely good and average as non-existent when declaring who shall be our future....

"I think your view point may be dependent upon your school district." I agree. However, even school systems that "seem" to do more for the special needs child are more frequently just using accommodations and not remediations. Our school system has quite a bit to offer the GT and bright students. They also do well in providing the remediation to non-special needs children who are "behind" because of socio-economic reasons.

It all depends on where you live. Even in other areas of the world.

Where do you live? That is definitely not my experience (nor of my friends/relatives in many parts of the country) in suburban MA, suburban Washington, New Jersey, Richmond, rural Iowa, suburban Minneapolis... The GT students are catered to here.

I thought you said that the GT kids in your district got "nothing". Now you say your child is in a GT program at her school. What gives?

I'm pretty sure France, at least, has a system similar to Germany. The students are split up according to whether or not they will be going to University. Also, from what I understand, French students have a lot of homework . . .
