URGENT: We need your help to save the Gifted Program!

The Toronto District School Board recently released the draft Enhancing Equity Task Force report which includes recommendations to “reform” (dismantle) the Gifted Program by placing and integrating gifted students into regular classes.

The report’s recommendation to integrate gifted students into a regular classroom is not supported by the research. Policy changes should be supported by evidence-based decision making and the research consistently shows that congregated gifted classrooms benefit both gifted and non-gifted students.

We wholeheartedly oppose the draft Enhancing Equity Task Force recommendations to dismantle the Gifted Program by integrating gifted students into regular classes. We need your help to protect the Gifted Program!
