Grade retention

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Grade retention is when a child repeats a grade i.e. first grade, second grade, etc. It may also occur in older children in middle school or high school. Some children have disabilities and must repeat a grade due to the school's fault for not meeting their needs in the first place. Either way, grade retention can be emotionally damaging on a child's self-esteem.
