Classes for high achievers are disproportionately dominated by whites and asians. Can't have that. These programs have to be destroyed with the proper application of minorities who just don't value education as much. Big Racial Gap Persists in O.C. GATE Programs : Education: Classes for gifted students still disproportionately filled with whites and Asians. - Los Angeles Times Every day in California's public schools, some of the state's best and brightest students are brought together in special classes to tackle advanced problems of mathematics, science, history and language. But while these classes boast some of the state's best young minds, they also have drawn fire for what they lack: adequate numbers of black and Latino students. Ann Beavers, director of pupil services in Anaheim City School District, said she believes that poverty greatly influences admission into gifted programs. In her district, white and Asian children come from families that are generally wealthier, better-educated and have higher expectations for their children than those of Anaheim's Latino students, she said. Following the lead of scholars, schools have begun to use a broader definition, one which would deem gifted not only children with high IQs or top academic records, but those with other kinds of talents, like a flair for creativity, leadership or even athletics. In other words, just destroy the entire program.
