Fight Funding Cuts for Highschool Gifted Students

Bills HB 7081 and S 1046 will re-direct the funding for all gifted high schools in the state of Florida. In addition, gifted 8th graders will no longer be considered gifted after they leave middle school. These bill will degrade all gifted high schoolers to regular students, which is unfair, and unexceptable. Discussions for these bills has been going on since January 6th, and many people still don\'t know about this! Please, sign this petition and aid us in this fight for gifted education.
