Joshua Wyner, executive vice president of the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation, argues the nation is ignoring the needs of lower-income gifted students in their report, Achievement Trap: How America is Failing 3.4 Million High-Achieving Students from Lower-Income Families (9/10/2007). For the local story, he’s joined by John King, managing director of the Excellence and Preparatory Networks for Uncommon Schools, a nonprofit charter management organization and Jacqueline Wayans, freelance reporter for InsideSchools.org and a former PTA president of the Talented & Gifted School for Young Scholars. Ms. Wayans is a co-author of New York City's Best Public High Schools: A Parents' Guide, Third Edition (Teachers College Press; 3rd edition, 2007)
