TALENT Act Introduced in House — Your Help Needed
Reps. Jared Polis (D-CO-2) and David Young (R-IA-3) introduced H.R. 2960, the TALENT Act, on July 7. The bill, which is the companion to S.363 introduced in the Senate earlier this year, would increase federal attention to the needs of high achieving and high-potential students though increased teacher awareness, investment in research and dissemination of best practices in gifted education, greater attention to high-ability students in poverty and by requiring states to report advanced achievement data, disaggregated by subgroup.
We now need your help to gather cosponsors for this bipartisan bill. Cosponsorship is an important way that members of Congress indicate their support for an issue, which in turn, can open critical conversations with congressional leaders. Please contact your representative and urge him/her to show support for the needs of gifted students by becoming a cosponsor of H.R. 2960.
