New evidence on the long-term effects of grade retention in third grade shows some good news among the nuance. I agree that there are many ways in which to educate a child, and that it is in their benefit to be educated. My concern is the federal governments control over what and how a child learns.

Some will learn things later, that are currently required for them to learn at certain ages.

Such parents believe that the more children they have, the better although they can least afford to take care of them. Their children because they grow up in disadvantated circumstances, oftentimes become problematic to the school system and later to society. They are benignly neglected at best because their parents cannot effectively raise a large number of children. That, or they force the oldest/older children to be parents to the younger siblings. These children for the most part are left to raise and support themselves at a young age because their parents can ill afford to do so. These parents do not believe in giving their children individualized attention because in their eyes, that is equivalent to babying and spoiling them. They are either uninvolved and/or perfunctory parents.

My only experience with the US education system was the years I lived in the US, Illinois state. What I most remember were all the days school (even university classes) were cancelled due to weather. Being from Ontario, I was really surprised at school being closed so many days for what did not seem extreme weather to me at least.
