Monday, March 9, 2009 | I find it interesting that it is OK to spend additional funds to keep “at risk” students in the classroom, unless that child is “gifted.”
Of the 40 children who started in the 6th grade seminar class with my son, I could name four students, or 10 percent of the class, off the top of my head who were not in traditional school by the 9th grade.
Sadly during the [former Superintendent Alan] Bersin years of one size fits all, much of the Seminar program evolved into a traditional classroom with a heavier workload — missing the entire intent of the program and losing some of the best and brightest students.
THAT is a crime!
