School officials in a Maryland district have proposed to end a policy of labeling students as "gifted and talented" and adopt a "no label" policy they say has been effective. "We don't feel a child needs to be labeled to get the instruction they need," said Nancy Erdrich, principal of Burning Tree Elementary School. "The 'no label' pilot hasn't affected instruction at all. It's not whether a child is labeled 'gifted and talented,' it's about getting the children the services they need."
