gifted children ... where are they now.
Last week I read that a 11 year old boy had just enrolled at Harvard to study Particle Physics. (Hope I got that right).
We have discussed the gifted before ... My question is this happens quite often ... is there any tracking that goes on after they enter or graduate college. Do they live up to or exceed their potential. Do they burn out? Do they make great contributions? Do they fit into society?
My niece was a gifted student ... she has a wall full of diplomas and certificates. She loved going to school and excelled. She never really did anything with all of that knowledge. She simply loved going to school.
Any thoughts on the gifted ... past ... present. Remember the Whiz Kids ... can you name them ... what were their contributions. Is it good to label these kids?
