There is life after Fast Forward math. We met with the teacher and really, it comes down to the fact that last year brought him up to one year behind. That is, instead of doing 8th grade math in 8th grade, he was doing 7th grade math. To switch over, he essentially has to do the fast forward and then take 9th grade math….a bit more math than he’d like, but you can go from one stream to the other.
So this doesn’t necessarily close any doors for him.
