Should students who fail a grade repeat that grade?

  • Syada Bareha Fatima

    Student should not repeat class or the child will think that it cannot do any thing and not try,If we will gave chance to thm they will try more and work hard to take good marks so he or she not fail again.If child concentrate on studies ot would be good student again

  • Yes they should.

    It will help students learn the curriculum better. :) if they repeat the grade, they may become successful in the next year and if not, just move onto the next year to see if they achieve something else to get better grades than they did the year before. So yes, I think they should.

  • Kids don't understand

    Kids don't understand the material that they are learning and especially with math the information builds on each other and if you don't understand the basics how will you understand it when it gets harder and more challenging. Those are some reasons why kids should get held back or fail.

  • What about preschool

    If children couldn't repeat a grade then they would shut down completely if they are challenged too much at the grade level they are at. Also if children couldn't repeat a grade then every child in preschool would only be able to go to preschool for one year. So children who have gone to preschool for two or three or three years would go to kinder garden too early and would meltdown.

  • People need to flunk

    If people didnt try in school we would have a world full of stupid people that never tried in school. Without haveing people flunk we would wouldnt know how to spell and wouldnt know right from wrong. Schools need to flunk people because without it people would just guess on every assignment.

  • I think it is a really really good idea.

    I know if there was the treat that if I wasn't getting a C average in school and had the threat of being held back I sure would have worked harder just like if there was threat of summer school.

    As it is I slaked off and did the bare minimum and left with really poor results which led to me spending 4 year at a sixth form collage instead of 2 years before going to uni.

    If we could hold kids back and send them to summer school we would have a more skilled workforce and there for a stronger economic climate.

  • I think yes.

    As a teacher, what I have noticed is lack of accountability from student's in regards to their academic duties and responsibilities. "Why should I bother when I'm just going to get pushed onto the next year anyway?". Parents also don't keep their children in check by reading with their children, checking if they're completing homework-or just plain caring about education. Standards have lowered in the past 20 years due to this. Reading levels are lower. Is this what we want for our society? And in regards to self-esteem; if you just "pass" the student, they're only falling further behind and we have a class full of Grade 7's reading at a Grade 1 level. Do you think they're not aware of their capabilities? Bringing back failing will bring back accountability.

  • Should Students Repeat a Grade?

    No;for a student to completely avoid grade retention, they can possibly attend summer school. Summer school is a program, usually promoted by a school, that provides lesson for the child during the summer vacation. By taking summer school, the student can get up to speed and avoid repeating the entire year. To illustrate, in the article “Should ‘Failing’ Students Repeat A Grade? Retrospective Response From Finland,” states “Students who need more time to learn are often required to take summer school instead of repeating the grade” (Välijärvi/ Sahlberg, paragraph 1). In other words, students can attend summer school and successfully pass the course instead of graduating later than the general population.

  • I think no

    Cuz wut if a student was gone on vacation or was sick, than they would fail, but that is wrong if u ask sum1 smart and it is not good at all, cyz it's not even the kids fault if they were sick, and so ye like duh no shit

  • Kids should not have to stay back if they fail a class

    I am against students having to repeat a grade if they have failed a class. I am against because I don’t think a student who fails english should have to repeat math too. Also, because no child wants to repeat a grade anyway. And what if the kid was sick most of the year? It’s not there fault they couldn’t study. What if they went on a vacation in the winter and miss just one project and they came back towards the end of the year? Would you really want your child to repeat a hole grade? I think not. And that’s why I think students should not have to repeat a grade if they failed a class.

  • They wouldn't know anything going in to their next grade

    If a person miss a hole school year they would know nothing about what they are or going to know in the next school year. They could not even go to school at all and still move on. So really you could get a F on everything and still move on.

  • I think no.

    IT is stupid and a waste of time. Why learn something you already know. As long as you learn it, you should be fine. And if you need help just ask another person. Its not that hard to walk up to someone and say "How do you find the volume of a sphere?"
