DeBlasio is ending the gifted and talented schools program for exceptional students and will put all children in the same classes, claiming that the current system discriminates against black and Hispanic kids.



So it looks like the Racist NYC Democrat Politicians are stereotyping all African American and Latino students as not being "gifted" and all Asian and White students as being "gifted"
It is just not true.
The ignorance, hate, racism and discrimination of the Corrupt Democrat Party is the reason why people are fleeing from the Backward Blue States.

So Mayor Wilhelm of New York has decided very late in his term to attempt to kill a New York City school program for gifted and talented students. He is drawing a lot of heat for this move, for (a) doing it, and for (b) doing it so late in his term as Mayor.

In one small way, I find myself agreeing with the Mayor. The tests that qualify the kids for this prestigious program are administered in KINDERGARTEN. Not surprisingly, the kids in the program are mainly Asian and "white," with very few Blacks, Hispanics, or other BIPOC's. It appears that strategies like tutoring and whatnot have a significant impact on whether the little darlings get into the program. Clearly BIPOC's are less well situated to provide those advantages, which may explain, at least somewhat, why they are so slightly represented in the program.

In that sense, it ain't fair to the aforementioned unfortunates.

But clearly, programs for gifted and talented students are appropriate - just don't weed out the dummies in Kindergarten, for Christ sake.

You clearly do not understand the term BIPOC as you are using it incorrectly. Nevertheless, DeBlasio ending this program is educational malpractice.
 
"Though about 70 percent of the roughly 1 million public school students in New York are Black and Latino, about 75 percent of the roughly 16,000 students in gifted elementary school classes are white or Asian American."

The system would be replaced by a program that offers the possibility of accelerated learning to students in the later years of elementary school.

And the test given to kindergarten students to screen for the gifted program, already suspended in part because the city’s advisory school board refused to renew it last year, would be permanently ended.

LOL! Brown people can't hang...so...lower that anchor and rename it 'Equity'

But Karla Stenius, a parent in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn, said she believed that gifted programs made it more difficult for children in regular classes to thrive.

“If we’re just dumping a bunch of resources into gifted and talented,” she said, “everybody else suffers because they didn’t know somebody or they couldn’t afford a tutor.”

THIS PERSON (probably a white woman) is how they can.







I wonder if Mayor Wilhem Jr. (DeBlassio's real name) is going to cut funding for basketball and track programs?

SHHHHEEEEEEIIIIIT.
 
So my question is this: Is it beneficial or detrimental to the "other" students when you have extremely gifted and/or talented students in the same class with "everyone else"? Secondarily, is it beneficial to the Gifted/Talented students to be stuck in class with average and below average students, recognizing that the teachers must to some extent teach to the "lowest common denominator," so to speak.

Once again, you don't seem to know how lessons are planned or what happens in a real classroom.
 
Another example of a leftist using something to get ahead, then pulling the ladder up behind him to leave others behind. Why would you get rid of a successful program like this.

Oh yeah, the wokenuts say it's racist so it must go.
