CAG Legislative Action Interest Survey

California currently has no Educational Code that identifies gifted learners as a unique learner group with specific learner needs. The identification of gifted students and addressing their educational and emotional needs is left to the discretion of local control. This has created an inequitable system that disproportionately impacts historically under-served students and their families.

Changing this system in California requires a coalition of vocal activists with a common message: California's Gifted learners deserve educational environments that see them and support their unique learning needs, because they will not "be fine on their own." We believe that California can do better for our diverse gifted learners in all communities.
