Give gifted students a chance to realize their potential without being held back by the riff raff. Just make sure the screening isn’t biased and everyone can win.
there is a fairer way to identify gifted children, and that placing each school’s gifted and achieving students in advanced classes can shrink, rather than expand, racial and ethnic differences in achievement. Universal screening, with a standardized process that does not rely on teachers and parents, can reveal talented, disadvantaged children who would otherwise go undiscovered.
