Don't we love how "No child is to be left behind" unless that child is at the TOP of the spectrum? Our school district has a gifted program our kids attend where they go to another school one day a week to be with kids like them. Then when they get back to their home school later that day they get to make up all the work for the day. My kids basically miss 20 % of the school year at their home school and make straight "A"s. What a joke. We moved to the suburbs to be in a "good" school district. We should have stayed in the City of Chicago and they would be going to the finest elite magnate schools in the country. If I knew 11years ago what I know now I would NOT be living in the lily white suburbs of Chicago!
