It is unlikely that any typical public school will ever have the resources, interest, or people, to put together a really good program for the gifted.

Don't believe me? Do the math on the number of gifted students in a typical school. Then do the math on the number of equally gifted teachers who could keep up with them.

They can put together decent programs for the 125s, but just about nobody will have a decent program for a 150 or above, nor could they, even if they wanted to. The reason is the same as the reason you won't find me on the basketball court shutting down LeBron James -- simple lack of ability.
