District Aims to Improve Reading, Decrease Repeaters

Ohanian Comment: What do you think the chances are for a child stuck in third grade for the third time sticking around to graduate from high school? Note that this article just repeats the PR drivel provided by the school--with no statistics on the likelihood that a child repeating a grade will never graduate from high school. Make that a certainty for a child repeating a second time.
