Re: Costs of Grade Retention--the same old version of bad NM style math about immediate costs of retaining students--costs do not accruse until the retained student GRADUATES in 2024. Too bad Milan fell for this old and worn out tactic. When a student is retained he/she does not add to the net cost--instead of one LESS 4th grader, the result is one more third grader.
For Rep. Stewart to state that retention causes dropouts, she needs to cite research which only could come from student follow-up studies--none of these have ever surfaced. This "firing from the hip type comment" is good for re-election by union hacks but hurts our children who are victims via social promotion. gene e fokken, las cruces, NM
