How would you feel if your child was put into an academic group based on their ability? This is called tracking. Tracking is when students move to classrooms based on their skills and abilities. For example, if your child is reading below grade level, then they would work with students in one classroom with similar abilities.

If the child is struggling they shouldn't be given work that they don't understand until they fully understand it, and students who are excelling shouldn't have to wait for the rest of the class to catch up.

Don't know why you just repeated your first statement. Meh, I'll do this anyway. Not all kids think the same way, so they should attend classes the best suit them. It's not fair if a kid fails his/her assignment because they take longer to grasp a subject than the other kids. They're not stupid they just learn a different way. That is why I believe ability tracking in elementary schools and all grades is ultimately a good thing for students.
