Here is something out just this evening...

http://www.washingtonpost.com/local/education/montgomery-county-will-offer-compacted-classes-for-advanced-math-students/2013/01/08/2304ad80-59d1-11e2-9fa9-5fbdc9530eb9_story.html

"Montgomery County students moving faster than their peers in math will have the chance to take ?compacted? classes starting in fourth grade under new education standards designed to make instruction more challenging and uniform nationwide. The compacted courses will teach material in a shorter amount of time and will be available at all schools. But the district will have very strict guidelines as to which students will be eligible for the classes."

I swear when I came across this story I thought I picked up some really old news. Montgomery County is in the United States, right?
