How much of a role should Central Office play in math placement single-subject acceleration decisions at Wake County middle schools?
As Wake's documentation shows, the recommendations from each school-based committee for gifted education are reviewed by Central Office for approval. That drew complaints from the parents of academically gifted parents who are speaking out on the issue of single-subject acceleration.
An example the parents have cited is how Carnage Middle School, one of the GT/AG Basic magnet schools, is no longer being allowed to give its own math exam for placement of sixth-grade students.
According to the parent group, they've been told that Davis Drive Middle School and Martin Middle School also gave school-level math placement exams.
