My 8 year old is struggling in 3rd grade, 1st and 2nd grade was easy for him. I requested a reading tutor provided by the school and was told there are no openings. I found out a set of twin boys one is in my sons class got tutoring that are "A" students after I requested it. The teacher says they scored lower than my son on testing but he is an A/B students. I find that hard to believe when my son can't even reach his AR goal for the first nine weeks.
The teacher recommended I request a list from the school for after school tutoring. Does she not understand the economy and tutoring is expensive. I feel my child is being left behind to possibly fail the 3rd grade when he should be getting the help he deserves. I will do whatever it takes to help him. Just had to vent.
