    Re: Student has to retake highschool

    That would be impossible if it were me due to the fact I would be expelled for punching every teacher in the school.

    Wow - without reading that article you would think that someone in this story was a dumb*** (most likely the girl). Little would you realize that it's the school district that's the dumb*** in this situation, and basically they're screwing with this girl's life because they messed up. That's just not right.

    Re: Student has to retake highschool

    that would suck but like CyKline said, she could just get her GED, it would be much faster.

    Re: Student has to retake highschool

    The question though, with the quality of education she was receiving in special ed classes, would she be able to pass a GED?

    Re: Student has to retake highschool

    I don't think I saw in there, but why in the world didn't her parents do something? How could they possibly not have known their daughter was incorrectly placed. If it's just HS she has to repeat then it seems as if she wasn't in Sp. Ed. before HS. Then she is abrubtly placed in Sp. Ed. in HS? There are WAY to many unknowns about this. Seems a bit strange to me...

    Had a friend in High School who had to go back for a fifth year to finish it up. He turned 20 while he was there. I never could stop making fun of him for that.

    She should be pretty popular her junior and senior years as she'll be able to buy her classmates alcohol.

    Re: Student has to retake highschool

    We had a kid that came back because of a head injury suffered in football his senior year. I can't remember if he just had one or two semesters to make up. They let him go through the graduation ceremony with his classmates and then came back in August to finish up.
