There are special schools for children whose IQs are 40 points lower than average. We give these children small classes, special buses, special programs galore, and what do we do for the children whose IQs deviate in the other direction? Some kids who are blessed with IQs that much higher than average feel they are punished for it. They are made to "learn" and "relearn" something they knew before they sat down in class. When they get really bored, they start trouble just to see if they can get out of the dull school, and then their motivation for learning is down the tubes completely.

Liza Bercovici suspected something was up when a student at Gabriella Charter School approached her last week and said, "Happy birthday tomorrow, Miss Liza. " So it was not a surprise the next day when the school's 400-plus students sang "Happy Birthday" to her at morning assembly. Bercovici sighed in appreciation, and when urged to make a speech, she stood humbly before the small sea of students gathered on the playground of the Echo Park school she'd founded. "I think everybody here knows that this school was started out of my love for my daughter, whose name was Gabriella," Bercovici said.
