NEW YORK: Mayoral Candidate Curtis Sliwa will be holding a Press Conference on Saturday, Oct 9 at 10 AM, at PS 267 East Side Elementary School, to show his support of NYC’s Gifted and Talented Program that Mayor Bill de Blasio has announced will be eliminated and Eric Adams has not vowed to support

“When I attended Bildersee Junior High School, I was in the SP program for grades 7 and 8,” Sliwa said.  “The SP program then is similar to the Gifted and Talented Program that we have now.”

“Because I experienced the benefits first-hand, I want more Gifted and Talented programs, not less.” Sliwa continued.   “The Gifted and Talented Program should not be diluted, nor should it be discontinued. ”

Sliwa’s youngest sons tried to get into the G & T program, but they did not qualify because there weren’t enough slots.
