Situation/Case Study:

I have a kindergarten 6-year-old who is reading at a third grade level. She is OK but her parents want more in the way of a pull out. In fact, they want her to be moved into first grade now. Test results do not warrant a move. The parents have appealed to the District office. They are pushing her too much. They have insulted me by saying, "She's been dumbed down."
