Letter: Repeating grade can have beneficial results




To the editor:

The article by Tom Lange (“School provides another chance,” Aug. 15) really brought back memories.

This is about a 34-year-old who in the eighth grade asked their teacher to allow them to redo (take over) their eighth year of grade school.

The first thing about this article that caught my eye is that in today’s world of primary education, there is no give and take between the student and their teacher. Every incident now is decided by stats and the cost of doing business.
