Legislative Action Network

The Legislative Action Network (LAN) is our platform to share best practices and exchange ideas, as we work to support a national (federal, state, local) framework to support all gifted and talented children.

NAGC's goal is to grow the list of active advocates who will directly call for improved policy and programs to support gifted children as they reach for their personal best.

UPDATE:  Funding for Jacob Javits Gifted And Talented Students Education Act needs your help.  Call your Senators, 202-224-3121, this week to ask for their support on funding the Javits program.  Ask them to sign them to co-sign Senators Grassley's and Casey's funding request letter.
