Children | Compromise | Deceit | Politics | Pride | Sin | Success | Worldliness | Zeal

Kathy Moravick, a fifth grade honors teacher, has gifted pupils still stuck on fourth-grade math. She spends lunch hour doing remedial tutoring for the gifted. Mrs. Moravick estimates that a third of her pupils do not belong in honors. And yet the gifted program here grows and grows. A lot of it has to do with parental pressure. Parents of the gifted have formed their own group here, Parents and Teachers of Gifted and Talented. It is a political force, nominating school board candidates. There are those who warn that if it keeps up at this pace, before long the entire district will be gifted. Honors teachers complain that truly gifted children are not advancing quickly enough because instruction must be slowed to accommodate the semi-gifted. Fortune., Feb 17, 1986, page 117.
