A Budget Won't Cut It
Transcript of A Budget Won't Cut It
P.1/Stone Due:5/13/12 Public schools jumped on the measure when they heard that the law was passed. The law was accepted because it gave schools control over what they spend money on. Although that was what the law was intended on doing, it only caused more trouble because schools are cutting off expenses for the gifted program entirely. Schools don’t understand the needs of gifted students. They take them for granted and think that they don’t need to be treated any different than normal students. Other programs such as Special Education are receiving much more money than the gifted program even if schools weren’t taking money from the budget. $$$$$ G.T. Special
Education G.T. This is how GT is like a form of special education. Gifted and talented education is a kind of special education for people who fall on the opposite end of the spectrum. Gifted students need to be taught a special way which consists of constantly being challenged. Special Education students need to be taught a certain way too, things need to be broken down for them. Teachers ignore that GT needs to be treated like a special education student when being taught. If the GT program is terminated and those students have to participate in normal classes, gifted students would be mistreated. They would be unable to learn subjects correctly. Some schools are finding that the gifted program is a waste of time due to how some students in regular classes are performing better in academics than GT students. Even though that is the case, some students work better than others, and some students are just not showing their full potential. This means that possibly GT students may not be getting gifted grades but that doesn’t mean that they don’t need to be taught a special way. They were accepted into the GT program so they should be treated as so. GT GT students should receive more funding because the program is not receiving the rightful amount of money it deserves. Schools are using the funding for GT for its own use. Not only is the gifted program suffering from a shortage of money but it is only getting about one tenth of what Special Education is receiving for funding. Also, if GT is shut down, talented students won’t have an advanced education to fall back on and kids would have to go to normal classes. The gifted program has a possibility to be shut down by the government due to a shortage of money for normal schools but, normal schools are already taking money from the GT budget. The gifted program’s quality is falling without its funding and it affects the students. The students are constantly challenged but without the GT advancement classes nothing can challenge them. That is also why taking away the program and putting kids into normal classes is not a positive idea. Gifted students need to be treated like any other student. They should be rated by their intelligence and the way their brain works. They need to be taught, cared for, and accounted for. Each student is an individual and should be taught by the level of their minds, not by how much money is in the budget. Content and Prezi
