Gifted Programs in Middle School

A friend in Grosse Pointe sent this link:

Middle School Honors Classes Come to Grosse Pointe

It addresses a move in Grosse Pointe to increase rigor in Middle School, which is a largely ignored area. It has brought out some of the tired old rhetoric against "ability grouping", but this time it appears that the desire to help children won out over the fear mongering.

I started trying to pull a few quotes from author Laura Vanderkam, but there are too many that are important, and to the point. Go read the short blog!
