My husbands cousin is 13 and this coming school year will be in 3rd grade. His sister whose 14 will be starting 9th. His aunt is a pos who really doesn't do well in the parenting department but that just seems way off.

Um yeah. A 13 yo should be in 7th or 8th grade.

I would not want a 13 yo in my third grader's class.

Um, yeah, I agree. I'm surprised that someone hasn't stepped in yet to help that child out.

Wow.

I knew a boy that repeated 3rd grade 4 times because his mom did his homework for him (most of his grade was based on his tests)  The mom said she does his homework for him because he is autistic.  He is a very minor autistic (he does have some speech issues and attention issues) but he can definately function enough to do his own homework.

 That's a pretty big problem. I dont' see how it was allowed. I don't know if it's a state rule or a federal one, but students can't attend public school once they turn 21. That's why retentions should be limited to a maximum of 2. A 13 year old in 3rd grade would turn 21 before they could graduate. That child needs to be moved up and given extra help.
