In terms of funding, my own state in company with many others[i], at last check still offers “0” (zero) funding for gifted education. Dr. Trevor Tebbs, Ph.D. is an expert in working with gifted and talented children across a wide spectrum of concerns. I recently had the opportunity to interview him and asked him for his thoughts on this unfortunate response to parents and advocates for gifted education. He is clearly troubled by such apparently uninformed resistance. “When I hear such stories I am saddened by what appears to be such a poor understanding of, even unwillingness to understand highly able children overall. It appears especially true that faculty are unable to differentiate between ‘smart’ and ‘gifted’ kids.” “What makes a kid smart? What … [Read more...] about Parenting Gifted Children: The Best Thing You Can Do

What was it about Neil Armstrong’s “giant leap for mankind” that captivated our heroic imagination? Here are three reasons why Armstrong remains an iconic hero. 1. Armstrong Lived the Hero’s Journey First, to understand the psychology of adventure heroes, we must turn to the insights of mythologist Joseph Campbell.

It does not reduce the education gap between rich and poor, which is the usual reason offered for such training. It slightly increases academic test-scores in first grade, but by third grade the benefit is lost and, according to some of the best studies, by fourth grade those subjected to academic kindergartens are doing worse—academically as well as socially and emotionally worse--than those who were in play-based kindergartens (for some of the evidence, see here). The views of kindergarten teachers are also clear (see here).
