• According to recent research published, 5-10% of the world’s population are gifted and talented. Some of them distinguish themselves with very large personal capacity (only 2% of the world’s population) • According to Romanian psychologists, in Romania, the percentage for Gifted approaches 4% of the population (vs. 2% worldwide) • Gifted who are not integrated into an initial education system, and then an economic and political management, migrate to countries which offer more opportunities for personal development
Why a Gifted Education Center?
• Because gifted children have special educational needs and are a vulnerable social group • Most of the gifted kids do not grow to reach social or professional success (50% of them according to international research) • As a society, we need to provide equal development opportunities for all children • It is guaranteed “the right to a differentiated education, to formal, non-formal and informal, educational programs as a whole, and appropriate development to the segment of the population represented by young gifted, capable of high performance, characterized by particular needs” (Article 3 / Law 17/2007 )
The Mission of the Gifted Education Center • To support gifted and talented children for a harmonious development in a rich learning environment that nurtures their natural skills and abilities to be authentically happy • To attract the most talented teachers • To apply the best curriculum and the most innovative teaching technologies, internationally validated
