Engagement is important for every student. Motivation and academic achievement are significantly related to one another. A student may be exceptionally bright but with little engagement or motivation appears average or below average. This idea is especially important for our nation's brightest students, the gifted, who are often not in appropriate programs to match their ability. It is one of our nation's biggest educational problems, the lack of gifted education programs across the United States.
