    I would have been f*cked if I didn’t go to a school that tolerated my autodidactism and unwillingness to do assigned work.

    Gee, how surprising that racist jeezus freak right-wing Republican filth are not only ignorant moral degenerates, but also outright f*cken stupid!

    On gifted kids: or sometimes they get to be mini-teachers in collaborative learning situations–not bad as a small part of their development, but something that doesn’t challenge them to reach their full potential.

    We have been so lucky that my son’s teacher manages to teach at a million levels at once (though, personally, I feel like she doesn’t push him enough in his weak areas. But we do that at home, so it’s OK). Next year, new teacher. I’m kind of worried. But so far he’s been in a public school, mixed-abilities mixed-age classroom, where he’s working at his own level in math & science and appreciated for his strengths.
