I believe one problem is that they don’t give adequate resources to the gifted kids. Gifted kids are going to advance our world as we know it, as they possess high IQ scores. You could argue that schools don’t do a good job at providing education for a wide variety of intellect, but who cares about the other forms of intelligence? They don’t give us the newest scientific discoveries, the newest technology, etc. Gifted programs school go all the way through high school.
