We would like to ensure you have seen the request relating to the proposed legislation in North Carolina relating to educational policy and funding (NC AGT is the parent organization for PAGE of Wake County)
From the NC AGT post linked above:
(This budget would result in:)
"Elimination of entire programs and services from some communities (e.g., low-income, rural, underrepresented racial and ethnic groups). Entire districts could now receive $0 from the state for AIG.
Reduction/elimination of talent development programs. If only the top 4% of students in the state are identified, then many currently identified students will be forced to be "degifted". There will be no funding to support services for them.
Reduction of identified gifted students from 163,115 (April 2022) to 55,128 out of the 1.3 million students currently enrolled in NC schools"
