  - Nebraska Rev. Statute ∮79-1107

Gifted and talented children do not acquire the lessons of school in the ordinary way.
                                                                                              -Howard Gardner

Gifted children think at such high levels of complexity that, while they can benefit from some aspects of the school day, they also require curriculum that allows them to move ahead faster and pursue their areas of interest and talent.
