Should highly gifted children skip grades?


Academically, I see the value. I wonder about the social aspect of skipping a grade.

    They SHOULD skip a grade or two. To make a gifted child be in a normative grade when he/she is suited for a more advanced grade isn't fair to the intellectual development of the child.
