I’ve read a lot about it. There is a mass exodus of gifted children from public education. It troubles me as a parent with gifted children in public
When it comes to parenting, my style’s somewhere between helicopter and free-range. I’m not a micro-manager of details. Neither am I a let-them-figure-it-all-out-on-their-own, it will all be okay type. It was uncomfortable for me to speak up,but being a parent has challenged me to do things that make me feel uncomfortable to meet the needs of my children. I pushed through my discomfort, and I’m glad that I did.
I ran for the school board even though I had never won a campaign for anything else before. (Not even 5th grade class treasurer.)
