A child in the special program with an average no greater than 20% out of a hundred, falling asleep in class almost everyday, and refusing to participate on 90% percent of the activities, in my opinion, and technically should have failed and repeated the grade. What did this school do? Wow, great idea, pass him to the next grade. At that rate, he'll be in HS, and have the skills and knowledge of a 5th grader...
