Just last week, lame duck outgoing Mayor Bill de Blasio announced that New York City will be abolishing all of its gifted and talented programs for public school students…

New York under Bill de Blasio is a city with a lot of problems. Rikers Island is currently run by the inmates. Shootings and murders are way up. More and more firms in the all-important financial sector are uprooting for Florida. A profound sense of decay grips America’s largest city. So you might think that Bill de Blasio had better things to do with his time than go full “Hutu Militia” on New York City’s best and brightest children…

It’s a lie so bald-faced it barely warrants a rebuttal. In reality, if every student is gifted, then none of them are. But not only that, the basic concept is absurd.
