New York City officials are phasing out the controversial “Gifted and Talented” program for elementary school students, a massive change aimed at addressing racial disparities in the biggest school system in the country. The entry exam identifying students as “gifted” will be eliminated, officials said Friday. Under the old status quo, about 2,500 incoming kindergarteners per year passed the optional exam, going on to spend their elementary school years in separate classrooms and schools.(Snip)The overhaul of the gifted program comes after years of debate and criticism—much of it focused on the fact that white and Asian students made up around 80% of gifted classes despite representing


White and Asian kids who flourish in school make the bLACK and LatinX kids look bad. The solution is obvious.

No matter what, there will always be kids that don't want to be in school and their "parents" could care less if their kids were in school. No amount of money, equity mumbo-jumbo, or removal of enhanced programs are going to change that. Programs like these are some of the last ways underprivileged kids who want to be in school could work hard, get ahead, and get the heck out of the crushing poverty and despair they experience.

I kind of agree with this at the elementary school level. Kids shouldn't be labeled at at 6, based on a test. They also shouldn't be separated socially. In a mixed classroom, kids who need special help in, say, reading can be given time with a reading specialist. If it turns out there is a genius in the class, he or she can be skipped a grade or given enrichment. The goal at the lower elementary level is to give kids basic reading and arithmetic skills. The disparity is not so great at that age that the "smart" kids need to be separated.

Should be easy enough to phase it back in when a new Mayor takes over. Just force him/her to make it one of the promises they make to get elected. I think it's important not to hold back gifted kids. They will go on to be the most productive Adults of their Generation! We need them! Too bad if the Black Kids can't keep up, a lot of White kids are not Gifted either!

Asian Americans are the nightmare of lying communists. They make a farce of the lies the commies peddle that blacks are held back because of racism. The vast difference in academic achievement between Asian kids and black kids is only partially because of raw intelligence - - but mostly due to initiative, drive, ambition, discipline, and caring intact families. So how does taking gifted programs away from Asian kids make black kids any better off? Simple answer - - it doesn't!

The 'average' Black person on the planet has an IQ below 85. The numbers in the developed world are a little better, 85-90. White people are above 95 and northeast Asians are slightly above that. New York City can end the 'gifted' programs now in place, but no matter, the numbers will remain the same. There are two things that cannot be openly discussed in an academic setting. They are the UFO (UAP) phenomena and the differences in intelligence between the races. At one time there was a third topic of non discussion, existence of pre-Clovis people in the Americas (a career buster) but that has now changed. UFOs are now somewhat allowed because of US Navy videos. Race and intelligence...nope, not yet.

I speak from the perspective of a parent with four gifted children. Perhaps the biggest challenge of parenting these children is one of socialization. Herding 4-5 year olds into a separate setting is counter-intuitive and counter-productive. They have to survive in a mostly non gifted world, and they have to learn social skills, cues, and not feel like laboratory animals being subjected to an experiment. NYC just might be doing the right thing, for the wrong reasons.

Eliminating public schools seems necessary for true Equity - note the big E. But that would eliminate the jobs of thousands of teachers, bureaucrats, and administrators. Can't have that. So a reasonable compromise might selectively ban the very top students. And figuring out exactly which students would create many new jobs within the school systems. More jobs, less excellence. a Win-Win.

The New Jersey woman knocked down by a deranged homeless mugger in Times Square is a cancer nurse whose anguished family expected to reunite with her after two years of the pandemic—but instead rushed to her bedside Saturday as she clung to life. Maria Ambrocio, 58, was walking through Times Square around 1:30 p.m. Friday after accompanying a friend to the Philippines Consulate in midtown and having lunch before heading home, her cousin told The Post. It was the same time that cops say Jermaine Foster allegedly went on a crime spree, grabbing a cell phone out of a 29-year-old woman’s hands at West 41st Street

The Delta variant does not appear to cause more severe disease in children than earlier forms of the virus. Earlier this year, the research team found the Alpha variant of the virus did not appear to make children sicker than the original form of the virus, first seen in China. New data suggests that youngsters also do not get any sicker from Delta than they did from Alpha. Researchers compared two groups of school-age children with Covid in England. They looked at 694 children infected with the Alpha variant between late December 2020 and early May 2021, and 706 infected with Delta between late May and early July.

Interior Secretary Deb Haaland, the nation’s first Native American Cabinet official, tearfully described the White House grounds Friday as “the ancestral homelands” of two Native American tribes.
