17 Secrets From Students Who Repeated A Grade
Whenever a teacher or school administrator recommends that a student repeat a grade, it's usually for the benefit of the child. Their learning isn't progressing as quick as their peers and moving them ahead to the next grade would do more harm than good. For those students who are forced to repeat the grade, the embarrassment and humiliation far outweigh any benefit. Rarely is the student happy about it and since teenagers having a penchant for bullying, ridicule usually follows the student. It's for the best, but these students sure don't see it that way.
