U.S. Department of Education – Staff Writer

“The U.S. Department of Education has awarded more than $4 million to 11 states to focus on increasing the number of minority and other underrepresented students in gifted and talented programs. Under the Jacob K. Javits Gifted and Talented Students Education program, grantees carry out demonstration projects, innovative strategies and scientifically-based research to enhance the services provided to gifted and talented K-12 students nationwide. The new grants will allow these states to take models that have proven effective on a small scale and expand the programs to multiple schools or districts. The awards are targeted to programs aimed at enrolling students that are economically disadvantaged, limited in English language skills or have disabilities.”(more)
