Repeat 1st grade???
My son is in 1st grade, and he has been suffering on paying attention along with being able to read. He suffered in Kindergarten, and even in Pre-kindergarten. It took him two hours to read a 7 page book last night, that it would have taken his stepbrother who is also in first grade five minutes to read. He keeps saying that its confusing to him, or he doesnt understand. I am trying to get him in the ESE program which is Extra Special Education, so instead of one teacher to twenty students, its one teacher to ten students. Its more of a one on one classroom. But here it is the middle of the school year and he still on the first page from the first day of school. It frustrating as a parent to see him struggle and I dont want him to be ignored or "slip through the system". Now with this No Child Left Behind Act, am I as a parent allowed to hold back my child (we live in Florida)even if the school says that they can't??? Please help!!!!!
