Optimize and Actualize Potential in New York State
AGATE and a distinguished group of New York State educators and experts on giftedness worked together to generate an Executive Summary. New York State will need innovative, well educated, and competitive citizens to maintain our state’s competitiveness for the remainder of the 21st century. We propose six recommendations related to developing the talent, skills, and interests of diverse students in New York State, including but not limited to gifted and talented, high-potential, highly capable, high-ability, twice exceptional, profoundly gifted, and those who show academic promise.
