Institutional learning is geared to serve the masses which means by default that oftentimes the smaller groups that need attention don't get their needs fully met. It serves its purpose, but it is not the be all and end all for sure.

It's usually easier to help younger children develop their skills since, even with differences, there is enough the same that there will still be some range of people who understand them. As children age their ideas become more complex, their needs more varied, and the number of people working at a level equal to or higher than they are becomes more limited. Add giftedness into the mix and you've got a tough situation. So it becomes easier for administration to brush the 'problem' under the rug instead of address it since addressing it is a big challenge that many administrators just don't have the time or funds to deal with.

In the end, it's up to us to do what we need to do in our lives. We need to find others that we can communicate with in a way that we can truly be ourselves. By making these connections we can find resources or share ideas to design a path that suits us, which may just be one that doesn't presently exist. A challenge? Yes. Impossible? No. Worth the effort? Definitely!
