Seems like there are a lot of new posters, introductions?.....

It seems to be quite a double standard.

Why would you assume that one can't understand the needs of a child who can't meet standards?  That seems like a rather large assumption on  your part.

Is this cnuts ds?  Since she recently returned overseas after living in the states, what kind of "real gifted and talented program" do they have in the school system in the country they currently live in, outside of the US?  You seem to know quite a bit about this new poster, can you fill in the details?

I'm still amazed at the similarities between her kids' school and the US education system...

Probably we need a glossary or something since CoconutShrimp is from a different place. In this country, "most" and "the one I'm familiar with" are not synonyms.

Of course. And sparkles. Because everything is better with glitter.
