Quoting: The Light Under the Door
was there programs like this in other states? Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1898146
which ones.... how do i research?
Many fall under:
TAG (Talented and Gifted)
GATE (Gifted and Talented Education)
I know there are more. Someone should know.
TAG (Oregon, Iowa, Virginia)
GT/GAT/GATE (California, Minnesota, Virginia, Colorado, Alabama, Washington, N. Carolina, Maine, Michigan)
Project Potential (Arizona)
Odyssey of the Mind
SRA/Extended Learning (Kansas)
Superior Student Research (Wisconsin)
Enrichment Resource Center
Enhanced Learning (Florida)
And probably a whole lot more. Seems like names changed over time or varied perhaps from district to district. Frequent name changing is such a confidence booster. :P This list was just from this thread. Looking at the names of the programs are kind of interesting considering all that we have uncovered in the last few weeks. If I remember the way that the federal laws worked in regards to the establishment of gifted programs, I believe that all the states were mandated to identify them and only received some nominal additional funding if they developed a program for those students. Something along those lines.
It's also something that is definitely international. The list here, as far as the US goes, doesn't seem to be inclusive of a whole lot:
