Age-grading was imported from Prussia in 1848. It was first implemented in Boston, in the Quincy Grammar School. It was a cost-cutting device. It was also imposed to let teachers reduce discipline problems.
The rural “little red schoolhouse” did not adopt this model. There, students of all ages were in one room. A teacher taught them. The older students who understood the material helped teach the younger ones who were having trouble. (This is the TGC model: student tutorial forums.)
If your child is racing ahead in a course, great. Never hold a child back.
If your child is in the 7th grade, what does this mean? If the work is too hard in one course, cancel the course. Let your child take the next year down. We will refund your money. Just let us know. But what if your child is racing ahead? Same. Switch to a more advanced course.
