Move on when ready

Posted by: TSanders

Many students also meet mastery before walking in the classroom. What do we do with them?

  • Why waste their time? I mean, if they want to stay with their peers, let them, but graduating early should definitely be an option.

  • My friends are apart of my family and who I am so I want to walk across that stage with them

I am mixed by the way the question is framed. I am a post grad at fifteen so obviously I have excelled past my "peers", how ever in regards to the American standardized test or Core curriculum...You DO need so yardstick to measure progress and k-12 that has to be consistent throughout the nation, iI really don't see how that concept escape you?

I feel it needs to be an option, but not a requirement. I've been asked by the school my daughter attends to allow her to skip grades. I turn down the option every single time. She is seven, though and I feel that shouldn't be her decision, yet. However, that being said, her teachers have had to go above and beyond (or rather didn't have to, but did on their own) to order her books to keep her challenged in the classroom where she is above everyone else. I think at this early stage, she should stick with her friends and appropriate age group, but I do like it being a continual option. When she is older, I would like to give her full control of the situation in deciding if she wants to skip a grade or not.

@Chandlerrouse- Just saying that it's somewhat ironic that you forget to both use the space bar and have the letter "n" for the word "reason" in a sentence about how intelligent you are.... Probably just a typo, I only pointed it out because it was mildly amusing. Post grad though..... Wow. I'm ahead of my year, but not by that much. Maybe if my primary had actually taught me something other than how to read..... I'd be ahead enough to pass 3 or 4 years early. As it is, I'm only 2 ahead, so no chance I'll be post grad by 15. Particularly because the NZ education system doesn't let you actually skip years.
