i think that kids should not be held back just because of their grades i think that they should continue just like their friends

Kids should certainly be help back if they have failing grades. Their friends are irrelevant, children who fail one level of study certainly can't be expected to succeed in further levels - that's unfair to ask of both the student and teachers. If children are allowed to continue, they'd be forced to study at level they cannot comprehend for years. I honestly can't think of any reason a student SHOULDN'T be held back. Allowing a student to continue would cause them to never advance beyond the level of education they failed at.

For one, your grammar and spelling is, frankly, abysmal. You want to work on that if you're going to debate on this site.

As for music and physical education, the child knows what is expected of him in these classes. if he fails to meet the requirements I see no reason for them to not be held back. If the rest of the class can succeed, he can too. You failed to explain why it "doesn't matter", so I can't argue with you.

If a student(s) fails to comprehend multiple subjects in one grade, they should be held back because what they learn the year before might apply to the next year of school.

Reasons for voting decision: Conduct--both sides used no insults or forfeits, thus, no points are awarded to PRO nor CON. Spelling and Grammar--PRO's grammar is much better than CON's compared to how much PRO typed, and CON's grammar was awful, thus, points are awarded to PRO for better spelling and grammar. Arguments--CON's arguments were all successfully refuted by PRO and PRO's arguments are still standing, thus, points are awarded to PRO for more convincing arguments. Sources--No sources were used by PRO nor CON, therefore, no points are awarded to PRO or CON for more reliable sources. PRO clearly won this debate. Thank you.
