I think that if the staff would not be so worry about if the child's shirt tuck in and if the belt is the right color and concentrate on the child being at school and on time. They need to focus on gettin these children preparing them for these test that they have to overcome and we all can get some progress done in the school.
I think they need to offer a tutoring class for after school. My son is in the 6th grade, and failed due to math only, everything else id A's. My daughter is struggling but getting by. I think that if they want more help and the child is actually wanting to learn then it should be offered to them.
