I am concerned about this issue. Is there any consideration for intelligence when considering children for special programs or schools? What about kids with special needs? As the mother of a child who will not "fit the mold" of the regular system I would like to know what the school system options are. Isn't the job of the school system to educate all children on both the high and low spectrum. Wouldn't our community be best served by allowing magnet schools to focus on those children?
