    #22 is not true at all in the UK. Here teachers face massive penalties up to and including instant dismissal if we doctor results and/or don’t accurately level their children, no matter how weak the class is. We value progress over attainment so it isn’t a crisis if the child has pretty low levels as long as they’re still on the move.

      #22 is not true in Vermont, either. There is no magic number of kids who can or cannot fail. At least in elementary school, we report what we see.

      Sadly in Renton, Washington School District (USA) Middle and Junior High are NOT allow to held a student back in the same grade (or Lower)… According to their policies the government already paid for one year of school education of your child and is unwilling to paid for another year (regardless if the kid can read or write at all)

      In Fact you will have to go to court to force the school to held your kid back and repeat the same grade.

    That regulation does apply to all airlines traveling to and from USA, however it only applies for those tickets departing from the USA or with the USA as their final destination
