A New Jersey district school is planning to overhaul an elementary gifted-education program, and parents are upset because they were not asked to be part of the process. Proposed changes include integrating some advanced lessons into the mainstream classroom instead of pulling students out of class for specialized instruction, switching to a project-based curriculum, and using more measurements to identify students who may be gifted. School administrators said they will consider parents' input as they move forward with the plan.
