"There's a guy in my class who goes around editing Wikipedia articles."

Admittedly, she's in a G/T program, but still.

What is G/T? Some kind of advanced program?

Gifted / talented.

I was in the talented and gifted program when I was in school as well.

Thank God Wikipedia wasn't around then...

Ah yes, that program. At my school it was called GATE - Gifted and Talented Education. I just didn't recognize G/T.

Hee hee. laugh.gif I had a college buddy who was a student teacher in a G/T program. He told us a lot a stories, with mixed concern and admiration, about what dangerous little bastards you were.

My school actually had a pretty shitty program. There weren't many resources available, so basically my being in the TAG program (as they call it here) meant that I got to spend most of the day playing Oregon Trail on the Apple IIe computers while the rest of the class studied multiplication.

Well, my entire regular class in elementary played that. What a sad program you had. But, as you say, thank goodness the Wiki wasn't around then.

I suppose that we're all too far gone to worry about what a gifted fifth-grader is doing to the leading online encyclopedia...

I was in the gifted and talented program. It was a complete waste of time. Nothing worthwhile learned.
