Is Gifted Education Relevant at the High School Level?

This week’s gtchat considered whether or not gifted education is relevant at the high school level. Jen Merrill may have said it best, “A person is gifted from birth to death, regardless of educational setting, so yeah, it’s relevant at the HS level.”

During the chat, we explored various programming options for high schools and whether most secondary schools were equipped to handle highly and profoundly gifted children.  A full transcript may be found here.
