Should students who fail a grade repeat that grade?

  • 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.

  • Que onda grupo. . . .

    Soy un crack soy bien pro porque yo digo que tienen que repetir año porque algunos no son integilentes pero yo si porque soy bien crack y por eso es que puse que yo digo que si y ademas yo ayer desayune tacos checo en mi casa y sene huevo con leche

  • 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.

  • I think yes

    I think yes because if they go higher they'll never learn any thing so it affects there way of life how they get a job how much they get paid in life or who they have as a agent and who they get married to or how they get treated .

  • They really should repeat the grade

    Knowing that they could move on without doing work that could create a habit for not doing work later on in life. Them moving on would also make it harder for the kids who are struggling to catch up and would continue to fall behind and their grades would continue to drop until something is done

  • Yes of course

    They need to know that it is important not to fake doing work. People who have like a sickness or a stress problem, repeating a grade can help them because the stuff they learned that year they will already know all the correct answers so it will be easier so they do not have to put much work into it.

  • Yes, students should be held back if they are failing a grade.

    First off, if a student is failing, it clearly shows that they are not fully comprehending the information that they are learning in their current grade level, or that the student is not putting any effort into the work that is given to them. If the student repeats the grade, they have a second chance at trying to learn the information in that grade. Yes, the student may be older than the rest of the students and it may be emotionally degrading, but there are sacrifices you have to make for learning. In the end, it's worth it because the student will understand the information a bit more, and they'll be prepared for the next grade.

  • Helps student to become more versatile

    Students need to repeat a class again if they fail because they think that not to do anything we will be promoted again to the next class as before .
    And it will be unfair with the passing and ranking students because they study hard and ranks in an class

  • If they go ahead they would not know anything or just a little and they might get made fun of for not being smart.

    Should students who have failed their class be retained or/and have to repeat th grade. I think that kids should have to be retained or repeat a grade. I think this because if someone does not get how to do something in class they should be retained if it is only a few classes, but if it is all of the classes they should repeat a grade. If someone does not get math or science or english or history or any other period they should just get a little todering of that session and some time pulled aside from stuff they really know so then they could get some extra help. If they do not know anything from the grade or if they just know a little they should go back a grade but if they don’t want to they should just have a little of summer school.

  • Yes Kids Should

    Kids should go to the grade again because it will help them learn the academics that they are taught better. If you don't understand the material in one grade the next grade is only going to get harder. Kids can make more friends if they stay in the grade again.

  • If they fail they should try summer school to determine weather they get held back or pass

    They should learn in summer school before there grade is determined that might have to stay back a grade and also if they stay back and don't get it they never learn and end up staying there till there older so thats why i think that they should not have to stay back

  • 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.

  • 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.

    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.

  • 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?"

  • No god dam flunking

    People should not flunk. It's a god dam NO! That is just a stupid thing to do. That just puts more pressure on the person It makes them feel bad. Those people get targeted for bullying! Flunking is a dumb dumb dumb dumb thing its Just a NO NO NO!!!! UGH
