Friday Forum Gifted Network
Every Student Has the Right To Learn Something New Every Day
The Friday Forum group of metro-area gifted education professionals who meet periodically to share expertise and problem-solve, have been considering the question: Is gifted education as we know it outdated? The group, coordinated through the Grants and Research Office of Intermediate District 287 and Northeast Metro 916, has discussed how in past years gifted education was considered the research and development arm of education.
