[ - ] Apartment moms, where do your kids play? Ours love to play in the family room but I'm thinking of making a rule that they can only play in their rooms bc I feel like all I do is bring toys back to their room at the end of the day. 15 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I have one dd and she plays everywhere but the toys get stored in her room. I rotate the toys/limit how many we have and go out A LOT. Before bed we clean up. I would let them play all over but maybe make the rule about how many toys can be in the living room all at once or a two-time per day clean up. My dd cleans as it is a way to procrastinate going to sleep. [ Reply | More ]

What troubles me is that certain groups of parents are less likely to request their dc be tested, for a variety of reasons having nothing to do with their dc's intelligence. And so the change will reduce access to the programs for certain subpopulations of dc. And these are dc who would benefit most from G&T if they qualify! [ Reply | More ]

But do you really think that those parents will let their kids switch schools (which most likely will increase the commute time) even if they were automatically tested and found to be gifted?

np--We live in the Bronx, and I see parents with their children on the crowded train every morning at 7AM taking their children to charter schools in Harlem.

First, if parents are so anti-testing, then public schools in this country are not for them. They are just going to have to accept that testing is a part of the public school experience. Second, I don't even care that the plan is scrapped, except that the DoE messed around with an admissions process for the express purpose of opening up G&T to more kids. Now, they aren't following through with that plan, so they messed around with admissions for nothing. [ Reply | More ]

The important big changes the DOE did from last to this year was the inclusion of the BRSA and the fact that you rank the schools after the scores are in. They also got rid of the waiting lists and give preference to siblings. These changes are not going anywhere. Not getting kids tested automatically is a little setback but I am okay with it because that's an easy way to save money w/o a huge impact. Just make sure every kid is sent home with the request form. [ Reply | More ]

What about them? There will be some people like that, of course, and obviously there's no way to force them to send dc to the other school. If every dc who scores 90%+ is guaranteed a spot somewhere, it's not taking away another dc's spot if the parent chooses not to send dc after all. But what about the parents who will find a way to send dc to the G&T if they're offered placement, but who, for whatever reason, might not have asked to have dc tested in an opt-in system? In that scenario there clearly is something lost. [ Reply | More ]

Not necessarily. People whose literacy is limited may not fill it out. People who don't understand the significance may not fill it out. People who are intimidated by what they perceive as an elitist program, or who figure dc won't qualify because they're accustomed to the system being rigged against them may not fill it out. People whose home life is too hectic for whatever reasons may not fill it out. But guess what? If the dc is tested automatically and qualifies, and those same parents are presented with A CONCRETE OPPORTUNITY for their dc, as opposed to a hypothetical opportunity, lots of those same parents who wouldn't have filled out the form will find a way to take advantage of what's being offered.

As a public policy/greater good for all the people of my city this sucks. If you accept (as I do) that G&T programs are better for those rare kids who test into them -- then the fact that somebody's parent/guardian is not opting in should not matter. Test everyone and provide the service to the best and brightest. (I would respect parents' wishes and allow them to opt out.) I think about my ds's pre-K class last year. Our zoned district is low SES, majority immigrant/non-English speakers. Nobody else in the school took test for G&T. There were some bright kids in that class. It is a shame. [ Reply | More ]

you could do a ceremony in which the pull-ups are tossed, I guess, and she gets to pick out new underwear at the store (does she like princesses?
