Gifted students should be given freedom to grow [How Free Our Faculty Are!]

Educator: Gifted students should be given freedom to grow
Gifted-education specialist Tamara Fisher unintentionally altered the growth of a tree in her front yard by attempting to guide its development.

Teachers should provide careful guidance to all students, she writes, but allow them to grow freely without limits to their growth.
