Gifted and talented on the Upper West Side.
The New York Times provides a sequel to its February 2012 story
on the racial demographics of elite test-admission high school Stuyvesant with reporting on the demographics of kindergarten-entry elementary gifted programs, focusing on an Upper West Side classroom program, typical of those which serve kids who test as gifted but not high enough to qualify for the dedicated gifted elementary campuses and schools-within-schools. The Stuyvesant story had only 223 published comments because the editors turned off commenting in record time, well before the story appeared in print -- and this time around no comments are allowed at all.
This post was deleted for the following reason: Framing this with the "they've closed the comments" thing is pre-dooming the discussion, it seems; if the report is interesting on its own maybe try again tomorrow without that framing? -- LobsterMitten
