Do you believe in social promotion 'no one left behind'?


At the school where I teach there has been a heated debate. Two 11th graders did not achieve the 2.00 GPA standard; and they will most likely not reach it in time for graduation. yet, they will be promoted to Grade 12. Among those 'left behind' is a 15 going on 16 student in Grade 8 and a 17 going on 18 student in Grade 10.Is it more important for a child to move with his peers even if he is failing; or should he be retained in the same grade so that he can get a better grasp of subjects he failed?if exceptions are made for one, should this exception apply to all?
