“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.
