The Thomas B. Fordham Institute and the Ohio Association for Gifted Children invite you to join us for a presentation and panel discussion about high-quality gifted education for Ohio's brightest students.
Gifted students are our future engineers, inventors, entrepreneurs, and job creators; as such, we will depend on them to keep our state competitive with the rest of the country--and the world. Few would dispute this assertion, and few would disagree that putting them on the right path begins in childhood. Despite this, the majority of these students aren't receiving the education they need in order to reach their full potential. Learn more about the state of gifted education in Ohio and how to improve it at Educating Our Brightest: Improving Gifted Education to Boost Ohio’s Prosperity and Success.
