High-risk Kids

In preparing highly functioning students in grades K -13+ to meet twenty-first century challenges, educators are asked to do more and more specialized training and professional development. We are required to serve any and all students at every level.
Some people believe -- mistakenly so, I might add-- that gifted kids can maintain academic success in any environment. (Young Abe reading by firelight, and so forth.) Measurably, the opposite is true. Gifted kids are high-risk individuals and are more emotionally fragile than formerly thought.
