Why We Should Advocate for Gifted and Talented Students

From the National Association for Gifted Children

Currently, there are approximately three million academically gifted and talented students in the United States; however many are not receiving the support and programs they need to reach their highest potential. Gifted and talented students need a challenging curriculum and a well-trained teacher who can inspire and motivate them, as well as challenge them to excel. As community members, we must support our children with rigorous course work and supportive teachers trained to help students prepare for the challenging jobs of tomorrow. Additionally, the nation needs gifted and talented students to enter certain fields as part of our national and homeland security apparatus. NAGC has developed a factsheet on the pipeline of talent in math and science.
