Do I have to retain my son?
I have a set of 7-1/2 year old boy-girl twins in 2nd grade. My daughter is doing well, but my son is struggling with reading and writing. The school is proposing to retain my son, however I am strongly opposed - not only because he is a twin. He was recently diagnosed with visual problems and got bifocals, yet we have not had time to see to what extent they will help. He has shown some improvement, but is still not up to grade level. I'm proposing tutoring over the summer and continuing the interventions already in place. I thought the issue was resolved until the principal spoke to me about it again today. Can anybody tell me what options and rights that I, as his parent have?
