Is there a real benefit to gifted programs?

The MomsEveryday Panel

Whether your child is in a gifted and talented class or is in a mainstream class, there is a certain stigma to the advanced placement. This week our panel chats about the social challenges of moving into the gifted and talented programs and why some parents opt not to have their children test for the programs based on that stigma alone. Have you had your child tested for advanced learning classes? Tell us if you were conflicted at all in making the move.
