  • Absolutely it should

    Students who were held back are more likely to drop out of school then their never retained counterparts (and grade retention is the #1 predictor of dropout), are more likely to have behavior problems, and are harmed by retention. Many countries prohibit grade retention and countries the best education systems believe all students can achieve the rigorous standards if the curricula is taught right.

    Standards are supposed to drive curriculum. If the standards are realistically achievable for that age group and the teacher is teaching right, the student should be able to meet those standards, unless they have a disability as defined under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act.

  • Yes to retention

    Retention policy support students a lot who are weak in academics but really want to improve . This will give those students a chance to prove themselves or to improve their scores in next class.
    Although parents and teachers should show them the importance of studies so that they would fully devoted their time to studies

  • Student retention is helpful for many students

    Being retained is often required as a "backup plan" for students in learning environments where all else has failed. Things like grade retention are necessary for some students who are having trouble keeping up in the classroom environment. With a lot of thought, grade retention is an option that schools need to keep open for the students who need it.

  • Student retention shouldn't be abolished

    Students who are retained are not only given the tools to grow but they are also given the chance to get into a better school. When students are given the chance to repeat a grade it is like a second chance. A glimpse of home some may say. Colleges these days are very strict in looking in grades, if students are given the chance It will not only help them in current times but it will also help them in the future with getting a good job and having a full life.
