I am not happy about this and seriously try not to think about it. I just hate thinking of him repeating the second grade all over again while he sees all of his friends from last year in third grade. I feel like the only parent who's child is being retained. I'm not sure what option to take now. I could hire a tutor but would that work? He's in summer school now. I feel like I haven't been as aggressive as I should be. I have a tendency to just take what people give me and move on just accepting the situation. With you guys being teachers can you give me some insight on what it means for a child to be retained? What do I do. What questions should I ask? I'm at a loss and not sure where to turn. Thanks in advance!
