The state school board in Maryland voted Tuesday to approve new regulations for gifted education. Under the new standards, students as young as 3 could be identified as gifted by schools, which will be subject to new guidelines for identifying students, creating programs and measuring progress. Several advocacy groups had unsuccessfully sought a delay of the vote, pending the creation of a committee to study the effects of the new rules on minority students and English-language learners.
