The topic came up today in the Manchester NH Union Leader. Apparently, nearly 13 percent.....that's right....13 percent of Hillside Middle School students were "socially promoted" to the next grade. That means students who can't read, write, or do math at appropriate levels have just been passed along.....only to fall further and further behind. That is a problem.........what do you think???
