Don’t Hold Me Back: in support of grade skipping and subject acceleration

September 23, 2010

There is an excellent column in support of grade skipping or subject acceleration in today’s Washington Post blog by their national education reporter, Jay Matthews. In the article, he cites the Belin-Blank Centers’ study, A Nation Deceived, as primary support.

As the second month of school nears, some parents wonder if their children are getting all that they need. The lessons seem too simple. Their kids are bored. If they have been designated gifted, there may be occasional pull-out lessons to enrich what they are learning, but that may not be enough.

You can also read A Nation Deceived for more information and research about the implications in schools.
