Not remotely what the American school looks like.

Replace "gifted" with "rich" and "nothing special" with "poor" THEN you have an accurate representation of the American education system.

This is a load of ******* ********. There is just as much opportunity in public school as there is in private.

Public schools are not overfunded. The education system is already bloated enough, throwing more money at it won't solve the problem.

I was actually in gifted programs in public school, and it wasn't quite as big a difference between it and regular classes. The determining factors were usually IQ tests, essays, and interviews, not based on wealth. It's just that people in higher socioeconomic tiers tend to be of higher intelligence than their lower counterparts that gives that impression.

What a stupid thing to say. Sure if you pay a ton of money to go to a private school your classrooms will be nicer and you will use laptops or something but you learn the SAME THINGS.

It is all based on your ability. If you are really a good student you will end up in AP classes with better teachers and classrooms. It doesn't matter how much money you have.

I want to agree, but then i remember my days in private school was ****

Eight hundred ******* dollars each semester, and it was a piss poor school. The playground is just 2 slides and a crippled monkey bar. The Basketball court the only **** you'll ever see, want to play a different sport? Too ******* bad, go to the empty floor and play football on the shaggy rug with your socks. No clubs, no special activities, not even something to help with scholarships, they just send you to the computer lab and tell you to do it yourself, and we dont even get any computer classes other than MAVIS ******* BEACON

well I live in southern AZ (AKA the worst region in the state that is 49th in public education)
and private vs public education is basically the same (told from people who have attended both private and public)

if you're smart/talented, you stay with other smart/talented people and continue to grow. if you're not that bright, you don't really move up or go anywhere.

basically, it all depends on natural ability, not much work ethic.

Tempe reporting in. I was in some honors classes in high school. The class rooms were actually more ****** than the average ones. Filled with smart kids, sure, but half of them were also douche nozzles. I guess they figured we were smart so we didn't need nice things. I deliberately got C's my junior year so they'd put me in a room where the books weren't held together with staples and Elmer's glue and you could lean on the desktop without it falling off.

I noticed here depending on how good you are/what you make in certain subjects they put you with different people, or it seems like. Say I make nothing but A's and B's in English, in my grade/next grade, most of the people that made A's, B's or both are in the same class, if I say..hypothetically have an F in math, I'm put with those for one period who also have bad grades. I suppost that way you get with people on your level in what your good at in all classes without being left behind and so on.

Hello again. I needed some sort of something to do, so I started just imitating everything I saw on TV. On the bright side, I saved a lot of kids from getting bullied, but on the other hand, every bully in the school district turned around and started going after me. I kept going imitating TV, though, because that was the only thing I knew how to do, socially(since nobody had tought me). It became robotic and I absolutely lost sentient control over my mind. To make things worse, I jumped two grades so I was doing this **** in front of people two years older than me. I was able to get over it after 2 years of homeschooling, in eighth grade. I still cannot remember anything specific that is not told directly to me, and if I try to remember, my head hurts like ****.   
   
 On the bright side, that gave me a lot of alone time to practice my trombone, so now I'm at just about professional playing level at the age of 14.

my elementary had a gifted and talented program. It taught us stuff that was a grade above what the other kids were learnign. while it might have been good, i think the downsides were worse, seeing as it made most of the kids in the group socially awkward from hanging around the same group of thirty kids for 4 years

My school let the 8th graders take HS algebra early if they scored well on a standardized state test. The HS had 4 80 minute classes a day with a two day rotating schedule, and the middle school had 8 40 minute classes in one day. What that meant is I got to miss English one day and spend the whole Math period the next day sitting in the back of the room doing whatever the hell I wanted on the school laptops. I ended up skipping just about every assignment that year and still comfortably passed every class. The algebra teacher gave detentions if you missed the homework at first, but she gave up on that eventually because I would have been in detention every class.

TLDR the "gifted" kids just got to slack off with no consequences.

Once children reach the age of 13 they are within the formal operational stage of development and are perfectly capable of learning at the same rate, albeit some not to the same extent (with the exception of those with learning disabilities). Some children have no intention to learn and disrupt the entire class, I remember when I was in school there was a kid in my English class who'd yell and run around and get sent to the headteacher's office every single ******* lesson, completely wasting the first 10 minutes of the lessons. It's clear that children who want to learn are hindered by those who don't, and that the children who don't want to learn require different teaching methods to those who do.

tl;dr: once children are 13 they need to shut the **** up and listen, if they won't then keeping them in the same class is just going to piss off everyone else.

Wrong by 13 many "children" have decided that the "system" is against them and deliberately seek to not only hinder but derail others whom are actually interested in education. I myself had a few students like this in my grade all they would do in school is show up for homeroom be disruptive until they were sent out and then disappear. Because of how neutered the school systems are they could not remove these students save for one who was busted on drug charges. The rest went on to be 20 year old high school seniors or just dropped out. Moral of the story is some people are beyond help and should be removed for the betterment of the rest of the class not pandered too because "no child should be left behind".

Not necessarily true in all cases. Children will act out for a multitude of reasons, the problem is finding out why. Is the work too hard? Is it too easy? Is there some mental issue that needs to be addressed? Is the child receiving the attention they need? All are questions where if the answer is yes to even one can result in kids acting out.

Most children are pretty much wired to want to do good and receive praise until they reach adolescence, unless there are some serious developmental issues that can be caused by mental development problems, abuse, neglectful parenting, or bullying. Which is why the school system should give extra attention to those children. By extra attention, not just sending the child to the office, but making that child go to a therapist and doctor to find out what the problem is. In cases where a child is acting out before the onset of adolescence can indicate some serious problems.

tl;dr Children act out when something bad happens to them, its not as simple as some kids want to learn and some don't.

In some cases yes, but half the time the kid is just an asshat who wants to **** with everyone. By 13, the rascals know exactly what they're doing and why theyre not supposed to do it, such as why they shouldn't punch each other in the face repeatedly and **** like that. Some people actually are just assholes
