Schooling for gifted children

Schools are the backbone of our education system. Children are admitted to schools based on their physical age and not the mental ability… And this is exactly why gifted children may find it difficult to adjust themselves in schools because of void of the nurturing they should receive from the institution.
Gifted kids face many problems in the school set up like –
They show higher abilities and are able to grasp the academic concepts far ahead of their age.
They may not share their ideas openly thinking their friends might laugh at them or simply won’t understand their thoughts..
They may put a facade to hide their real talent
They may feel restricted and limited
To understand their challenges and to know how teachers and parents can help gifted children adjust in the normal school setup, today we are joined by a parent who has experienced all these challenges first hand, Ms. Chitra Ramaswany from Bangalore. She is a mother to 16 year old Shankar, who is gifted in STEM area and has published a paper in the Young scientist journal UK at the age of 16.
We have discussed about:
Role of a parent
Role of the school, Teachers and Principal
Social interaction of the gifted child in school
And more
