Subject: Re: Re: Readiness test for algebra

I suggest reccomending the child into the honors level. Make sure the child wants to. And if the child is doing poorly in the class, just switch the child out. Most kids have to wait until their sophomore year to double up in geometry and Algebra II, which is very stressful and most of the time takes the fun out of school. At least give the child a chance in the class.
