UNTAPPED POTENTIAL

High-ability, low-income kids are more likely to be attending schools with limited resources—schools where the teacher’s attention is often focused on struggling students. That’s important, because gifted kids from low-incomed backgrounds are often dependent on the school system to identify and cultivate them to maximize their potential. When gifted students aren’t identified, they face increased risk for dropping out of school and not realizing their full potential.  In Illinois, low-income and students of color are greatly underrepresented in the gifted category and as a result, the talents of our smartest children go unrealized.
