By now, most everyone is back from their spring break, including our state legislators. Now is not the time to back off from our advocacy efforts. We need to continue out letter writing, emails, Twitter and Facebook posts, and telephone calls to our state elected officials.
Recently, a few groups of parents of gifted started to join together to make a difference. I encourage you parents to do the same. If you don’t know who to contact, check with your gifted specialist for your school. Gifted specialist, invite a group of your parents to meet. You will be surprised to learn that many do not know gifted education is not funded. Many, also, do not know the risk of losing their gifted services they already have and some may also not realize what used to be in their system, is now gone.
Please, write to your elected officials. It is not too late. Our gifted children need to get the appropriate education they deserve.
