What types of advocacy for gifted students would you recommend when working with other educators; families; communities; and other professional organizations?

Whether you are an educator, families, community or professional organization, we need to gain knowledge to be strong advocates. It is our responsibility to take action and not just “talk the talk, but walk the walk.” As collaborative partners working with highly capable students, we need to work together to focus on a concise goal. As advocates in education, we need to work together to support and meet the needs of all our students.
