When the teacher says your child will most likely be placed instead of promoted?

Does this mean he/she is not that smart?

  • if your child is coming out of pre-k and is being placed into kind istead of promoted it means that they didn't meet the requirments to move on, but htey are too old to stay in pre-k this doesn't mean that your kid's stupid, it just means that they didn't meet the rediculouse standards that are put on five year olds.

  • What does placed mean? Promoted means go to the next grade.

  • I would home school, that is what i plan on doing to my two little ones when their old enough. Schools judge and test children instead of nurture and teach them. If you have the means, you can get a free computer from one of the more popular home schooling programs. You dont even have to be home for that child to do it.
    But no, it doesnt mean their not smart. It just means that child has a different learning style than the school does.

  • If you mean that they will repeat the kindergarten/preschool again next can mean alot of different things. Some kids are smart as a whip but just not socially mature enough for full day responsibility. Some kids need more practice in the basics. It DOES not mean they arent smart. It means they need another year of maturing.

  • You need to find out WHY you child won't be promoted to the next grade & go from there.
