We have since enrolled him in several summer classes for advance children, meet we his teachers several times during the school year to make sure he is being challenged in school through extra credit assignments and his school also has math and reading clubs that will further challenge advanced children and we are also looking in to private schools geared towards advanced children.
We do not need schools or government regulating and segregating our children.
We need parents to know what going on in their child's life and get involved in it. This lack of parental involvement and guidance is what is screwing are kids.
You need a license to drive a car or carry a gun but anyone can be a parent and ruin a child's life.
