Gifted and Talented Children
Hello, dear collegues!

Are there any educational programs for gifted  and talented children and young people in your countries?

This is a message from angry and disappointed magneto:
No, there aren �t...The way things are going, pretty soon we won �t even have simpler educational programs here...Damn our bloody governments and the bloody IMF!
...Pardon my French.

Edit: P.S.: Can�t wait to hear what�s happening in the civilized world.

Hey magneto, you are not alone in this!
I guess we (in Latvia) were the first to experience the steely clamp of IMF �s hand!

To ratatuy - I have only heard about programmes for weak students but never for the gifted. I suppose governments think they are good anyway so why bother....:((

Two in distress  makes sorrow less. As I can see, Spain is not different either. I have a gifted boy in one of my classes and the only solution they found to make him feel better at school was to put him in a superior course (I �m not sure about this expression) or pass him a course. I think it was a mistake because he is a child who doesn �t fit in the group because his mentality is the one of a younger boy in spite of his incredible intelligence.
