I taught the first year of the the 2 year Algebra course last year. I
failed a few kids. One is in the 1st year again. One of them we sent to
regular one year Algebra instead. It kind of depends on the kid. If their
skills are not that great we make them take it again. If their skills are
okay but they are just not completing work we send them to regular 1 year
