Empowering Gifted and Talented Students
from The University Iowa
In the 1960s, few schools in the country had gifted education programs, including schools in Sioux City, Iowa, where Susan Assouline grew up. But Assouline was a strong reader. So good that she qualified to take a foreign language course in seventh grade, a course normally not offered until high school. On the day her teacher announced to the class the names of students selected for this opportunity, Assouline's name wasn't mentioned, and she went home feeling down. Her mother called the school and found out it was just a clerical error.
