from Education Week

Tamara Fisher, a K-12 gifted education specialist for a school district located on an Indian reservation in northwestern Montana and President of the Montana Association of Gifted and Talented Education, writes: "School should be about LEARNING. It's really that "simple" to me. Yes, our schools fulfill other purposes, too. I certainly don't deny or disagree with (much of) that. But if a child is mostly being "taught" what he or she has already mastered, I don't think we can say that child is getting an education. At school, of all places. Ironically, it is our gifted youth who are often learning the least.
