I dont agree with the no child left behind. When my youngest was in 1st grade, she was behind in alot of things, math, reading mostly. BUT she scored very well on the CRCT (standardized test) and the teacher was going to pass her. When I say she was behind, I mean like pre k level. I met with the teacher and she refused to hold her back. Her father and I ended up meeting with the principle and basically told her if my dd didnt get held back I was going to the school board. Well we are 5 years later and my dd is now getting A's and B's. I feel if I had let her go on to 2nd grade, she wouldnt be doing as well as she is. She just wasnt ready. I have seen kids that got promoted and should have been held back and they are a disruption, my opinion is what is being taught to them isnt clicking and they are bored and discouraged.
