The board has been pretty slow lately as a pp mentioned. I'd love some good discussion on the expansion versus acceleration topic. I've noticed on the gifted boards acceleration seems to be popular with parents. However, when talking to the schools and teachers who are friends (i.e. DS not in their class or school), the consensus seems to be that going wider and staying at grade level is better than advancing beyond a year. Our particular school situation refuses to allow acceleration beyond 18 months. Thoughts?
