I oppose the school district's proposal to eliminate self-contained classes for sixth graders identified as gifted. Peer support is especially important in grades 6 and higher. 6th grade self-contained gifted classes have thrived in Bensalem. The program should not be disbanded.
In addition, I support expanding and oppose eliminating gifted class offerings at Bensalem High School. I am willing to pay higher school taxes to support gifted education in Bensalem, if that is truly what needs to be done.
