My GATE choice will be easy

As the parent of a first-grader in the Davis schools, I have been on the fence about whether I might choose GATE should my daughter place in the program, especially given that no one has been able to show whether the program is effective or meets the needs of our children and our community.

But if Kathy Glatter and letter writer Derek DeNardo (“Grow up” and “get used to it”) are at all representative of the kinds of parents and children involved in the current GATE program, I will have no problem opting out of it, no matter how “intelligent” my daughter proves to be. My choice will be easy.
