Exceptional education


Exceptional education

Exceptional Education, also known as Exceptional Student Education (ESE), usually refers to both the education of gifted (also "talented") children and children with physical or mental disabilities. These programs are funded and supported outside the normal class framework: elementary schools dedicating separate classes, wings, and schools (such as magnet schools); secondary schools substituting classes with honors courses or special-needs classes.
