The week of February 23 – March 2 is Gifted Education Week. Because of this occasion, all the Spectra students are going on a field trip to Jefferson City. They are sharing letters to our Senator and local Representatives about supporting gifted education and to support full funding for the MO Scholars Academy and the MO Fine Arts Academy. But why?
Governor Jay Nixon is withholding all $750,000 for the MO Fine Arts Academy and the MO Scholars Academy. So all the Spectra students asked the Senator and local Representative to support full funding for those academies.
They also asked to support or keep supporting House Bills and Senate Bills that support Gifted ED. I hope that they decide to do the right thing and support Gifted Education!!!
