I want the schools to give more tutoring to children that just go to school, learn nothing, and nothing is done besides threatening the parent with fines and CPS. My son is 10 going to sixth grade. He cannot spell ANYTHING at all. He can barely add. How is he supposed to do fractions like a sixth grader. I have received ZERO help or support. I tried home schooling him but it was worse. He had to complete extreme amounts of work or they would kick him out.
How was I supposed to teach so fast? I gave him the answers after many attempts just to comply but he is still at first grade level academically. I am truly frustrated and see how the system has failed us. I can’t afford tutoring like Sylvan. So what am I to do? Just let it ride? For how long? What is the future holding for my son? Something needs to be done.
