My daughter was officially selected into the gifted/talented program at her school as "gifted".

They accept kids who exhibit "talent" in certain areas and kids who test as "gifted", yet they make it general enough so they can actually selected or not selected just about anyone they want (or so it seemed to me).

The good news is that according to the information I received in the mail yesterday it is now state law that she is challenged AND they are not allowed to remove her from the program without my permission BECAUSE she was selected as "gifted" as opposed to "talented".

Hopefully this will solve the boredom problem.
