Parents on the UWS are outraged about the announcement of the closing of PS 9 G&T program for incoming kindergarteners next year. Parents had already submitted their G&T school selection for next year and didn’t even know this program was being phased out. The announcement was nicely tucked in the backpacks of students as they headed home from school. Parents who select P.S. 9 gifted and talented school are now more stressed out than they were during the OLSAT practice test season! The New York City department of education’s (that runs the NYC gifted and talented program) Chancellor Dennis Walcott vowed Monday to personally meet with angry and bitter Upper West Side parents over the loss of one of the most popular gifted and talented programs in New York City.
