and bottom line... My son Ian who is 6 needs a second year in grade one. The school will try to disuede me from this but they are worried about money and not the kids and happily they move kids up grades and out of school when they can't read.

Ian will get over the trauma quickly as he is the youngest in his grade making the cut off by 3 days.

wish me luck with the school

Good luck in your quest!! It fumes me that the people who should be watching out for the kids are not doing their job!!! I haven't had to deal with this issue but a friend of mine did. Her son was the same like 3 days shy of waiting a year. Anyway she did get her way since she is a foreigner and the her son's mother language is something other than greek.

Let us know how it goes!

the school board claims it is bad for a childs self esteem to fail them and that is why they pass them up even if they don't get it.

could be why the drop out rate in quebec is 40%
which is staggering.

But I don't buy into that crap and he should stay back a year and I am going to see to it that he does

you know.... I have been requesting he get resource assistance since January and they only started with him last week and only seen him the one time. Its very frusterating. They argue that they have many to help. While I understand their predicament (all comes down to money) its not helping my son any.

They have got to be kidding!! I think his self esteem would be damaged even more by passing him to the next class and than struggling with the reading. Like you said Mel, he is young and he will get over staying back a year. I agree with you 100%!!

At least he did get assistance finally!! but alot too late. Dig those heels in Mel!
