i knew a boy who got held back two years. his name was kevin. i remember seeing him in junior high, i was finishing and he was just starting. he had bleached hair and nobody talked to him and he always looked like he had been crying but people just said he was stoned.

around the end of the year he stopped coming to school. i wish i would've talked with him. i don't think people fail school without a reason, like a mental problem or something outside of school that's fucking with them

i would say its a lack of motivation. just because kids get held back doesnt make them bad kids. kids i know that got held back are actually pretty smart. also i guess emotional issues could play a role. for example i didn really like my advanced bio teacher because he was a bit of a jerk so i didn't do anything for about a week. i think some kids may not like there teacher, the kids that they are in class with, or just don't like where they live or the school in general.

I'm an Asian Donut. I wasn't held back. Well, except that I kept on shifting programs/courses.
