What is the school's reasoning for wanting to hold your son back? If it is an academic issue, what interventions have they tried first? If there is a concern of a learning disability or similar, you can have your child tested for free by the public school system (yes, even if he's going to a private school), & if he qualifies for services, you would be required to transport him to wherever the public school provides those services (most likey in what would be his public school bldg).
If it is for behavioral reasons, again, what interventions has the school tried first? Has anyone asked your son what he thinks might help him with his school work? Even if he didn't break his dominant arm, maybe he needs extra help w/his work? Maybe he's bored in class & needs challenged more? Etc, etc.
