The Chance to Learn

Today's thoughts will be short. Can you really have a "short thought"?

Anyway, a lot of resources are allocated to disadvantaged youth, at risk youth, special needs children, etc. Several years ago, one of the first cuts the State of Michigan made was to cut the gifted and talented funds.

It would be awesome if there were some way to find financing to help our gifted and talented children reach for the stars and be allowed to try something creative, different ... Something that interests them ... a possible career strand or something ...

How can this happen?

Creative initiatives that attract foundation and other private dollars. It may also require changes in other paradigms, including the reallocation of existing resources.
