Does anybody else see this as a commentary on the level of education achieved in public schools? LOL
If a child fails all classes in the first semester in homeschool, then passes all their classes the second semester in public school, Will they pass 8th grade?
It would depend how badly one failed the first and how well they passed the second.
From my own personal experience, yes. I live in Southern California, so I don't know about anywhere else.
My daughter missed 7th grade and half of 8th. She went to public school second semester of 8th grade, passed and continued on to 9th grade. We had her tutored privately to transition her back into school that first semester. She caught up in no time and the transition was painless.
It depends on the school district, My guess is they would have to do summer school.
