Educators recognize that each child is unique, learns differently, and, therefore, learns better if teaching is tailored to their abilities and interests. In continuing with Minnesota’s commitment to ensuring that all schools and classrooms are welcoming and capable of educating all Minnesota children, Governor Dayton has proclaimed December 5-9 Inclusive Schools Week.
“It is very important that every classroom is high performing and inclusive,” said Education Commissioner Brenda Cassellius. Every child in Minnesota deserves access to a quality education that is reflective of the communities that we live in. I applaud Governor Dayton in recognizing this important effort.”
Gifted and Talented Youth Week
Governor Mark Dayton has proclaimed November 2-8, 2014, to be Gifted and Talented Youth Week in Minnesota. In addition to recognizing the unique potential of gifted and talented youth, seize the opportunity to laud the efforts of the parents, educators, counselors and psychologists with whom they work. Their sustained efforts, coupled with the organized advocacy of the Minnesota Council for Gifted and Talented (MCGT) and the Minnesota Educators of Gifted and Talented (MEGT), help make our state one in which gifted learners are honored and valued.
