Typically.. a retention scale is done to decide whether a child is "held back". This includes a variety of things. Grades on just homework is not one of them. It's also based on a parents decision. Talk to his teacher.

I agree. And even not doing homework, if he's doing fine on tests should still keep him at a C average, which typically isn't grounds to hold him back. I would definitely schedule a meeting with the teacher. Definitely also has to learn to ask for help if he isn't understanding something, so the teacher may be able to give some insight on that as well.

Not turning in homework sounds like more of a behavior issue, and I don't think they would hold him back for that. Hopefully he has an easier time with the homework in the new year!
