American Prodogies | Prisha Reddy | TEDxYouth@Jenks

In her speech “American Prodogies”, Prisha Reddy discusses a common program found in American schools, Gifted and Talented. She will describe the effectiveness of these programs and whether or not we should be investing in them. My name is Prisha Reddy, and I am a sophomore at Booker T. Washington High School. I am part of my school’s Speech and Debate team and am interested in becoming a doctor when I grow up. From a young age, I have taken an interest in academics and even been part of the gifted and talented program. In this country, the gifted and talented program is viewed as a prize only available to those who are naturally gifted. However, in my speech, I will explain why this narrative is false and how it is harming students today. Additionally, I will provide an alternative that will uplift students and provide a better environment for students to learn. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
