Supporting evidence

Susan Goodkin. "Leave No Gifted Child Behind". Washington Post. December 27, 2005 - Conspicuously missing from the debate over the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act is a discussion of how it has hurt many of our most capable children. By forcing schools to focus their time and funding almost entirely on bringing low-achieving students up to proficiency, NCLB sacrifices the education of the gifted students who will become our future biomedical researchers, computer engineers and other scientific leaders.


Nancy Green, executive director of the National Association for Gifted Children - "Because it's all about bringing people up to that minimum level of performance, we've ignored those high-ability learners. We don't even have a test that measures their abilities."[1]
