Opinion/Letter: Vast majority of students 'gifted': An absurdity?

  • 1

Re: “86% in grades 3-11 ID’d as gifted,” The Daily Progress, June 14 online, June 15 in print:

I am reminded of “A Prairie Home Companion,” where “all the women are strong, all the men are good looking and all the children are above average.”

Eighty-six percent of children in Charlottesville schools, third through 11th grades, are identified as gifted.

Does anyone else see this as absurd?
