Over in the Community Section, Gifted Gazette author Michael McCurdy is riffing off an article in the New York Times earlier this week about the Speyer Legacy School, a new private school that only admits “gifted” children, to ask big questions about how we define giftedness and whether gifted students should have their own schools.

McCurdy writes:

I’d like to hear from other GothamSchools readers on how they define (or despise) the label “gifted and talented.” Should we use another name? Should NYC have yet another private school that caters to the gifted and talented like Speyer Legacy School?
