NYC prepares to end the closest thing it still has to public education.
New York City will phase out its program for gifted and talented students that critics say favors whites and Asian American students, while enrolling disproportionately few Black and Latino children, in the nation’s largest school system.
Starting in the next school year, the city will stop giving 4-year-olds a screening test used to identify gifted and talented students, according to an outline of the plan released by the city’s education department on Friday.
In all honesty, they are beginning to run low on children who qualify anyway. If your three-year-old in one of the few, then HOMESCHOOL and/or (preferably “and”) leave the city.
