My son got put in a special education class. Does that mean he's gifted?

His 2nd grade teacher from last year got his principal to put him in a special education class for next year. Are special education classes for kids who are 'special'?

    in the US, a child is not put in special ed without a meeting with the parent...and the parent would know

    some states included gifted students in special ed.

    some students with disabilities are called twice exceptional, they have a learning disability like dyslexia but are also intellectually gifted.

    Special yes but not in a good way. Special ed is for slow learners or kids with behavioral problems or attention problems.
