Parents are trying to save a program for their children in Seattle Public Schools called the Highly Capable Cohort. It's an advanced track of separate classes and different lessons for students who have first been deemed by their parents as "gifted," and then tested to make sure they meet program standards.

Why would a rigorous program for children who are testing above their grade level be yanked by the district? Because the program's secrecy and inaccessibility is steeped in systemic racial bias.

Dave Ross consults Dr. Pedro Noguera, an expert on public education globally and a fierce advocate for truly equitable schools. His opinion might be different than you would think.
