Comment on 4 Reasons Gifted Programs are Irrelevant by Susie http://www.brilliant-insane.com/2016/07/4-reasons-gifted-programs-are-irrelevant.html#comment-9192 Thu, 03 Oct 2019 01:38:05 +0000 http://www.brilliant-insane.com/?p=8730#comment-9192 The underlying problem is accessibility. I don’t know about your state, but here I NYC— virtually any kid can attain the label as long as their parents had them at test-prep centers from the age of 3. I work at a gifted school, and can assure you that the vast majority of the kids demonstrate no intellectual capacity whatsoever; some are not even on grade level in math and reading . Why is this? Well, what does the GT test truly measure outside of active listening and spatial reasoning ? Not much — not to say that giftedness only compromises academics, but having an IQ over 130 reveals itself in some way right? That’s why we have toddlers in Mensa; they are able to demonstrate their intelligence.And truth be told, only about 7 out of the 28 students in my class possess high level of curiosity, love for learning, and intense feeling. On top of that, most of the students in GT programs (in NYC) at least, hail from
affluent, well-educated families; so, naturally the students will possess a stronger lexicon as their parents earned Masters degrees and presumably have their own lexicon that exceeds one of a working class parent. The problem with “giftedness”, and I know it for myself as one, is a question of innate intellectual capacity and “training “ a child to be smart. There is an intense degree of inequity when you consider how the students in my classes discuss their lofty adventures in the Hamptons. None of them are discussing dinosaurs, math, or anything outside of the material wealth they’ve inherited; is that what giftedness is: being wealthy enough to be smart ? I don’t think so. Testing for GT must become universalized and administered by the school district . As of now, we have parents being the judge of a child’s ability and if you’ve ever entered a GT test prep center , it’s horrifying. 3 year olds training for an exam should be rendered as child abuse— this is not how you assess a child’s IQ.
