ok so this guy deserves a fair chance like everyone else. please sign this petition to get this man into his proper grade. All he wants is to be in high school.

http://www.change.org/petitions/broward-school-board-let-alex-torres-skip-to-his-proper-grade

that link will take you to the petition, please help him get into high school where he belongs. I know this is asking a lot, but this man deserves an equal chance like everyone else. I know this man personally and he is in a very sad state right now. If enough people sign, then the school board will probably listen! so please lend your support on this. and please spread it around if you decide to help.

The information surrounding this petition is a bit scarce. If you get all the signatures, are you sure this will be enough to get him into the proper grade?

Even if the information for the petition isn't really suffice, we should at least do something about this matter.

I'd rather know all the relevant details surrounding the situation before signing a petition. What kind of school is this? is it private? he would have better luck going to a public school, which are free and generally you have lowers costs with other school materials at public schools. There are options. The whole bit around quitting school because he couldn't afford it doesn't really add up unless the school is private.

There might also be tests that allow him to skip to the grade he's currently at.
But if he's currently in 7th grade he'd probably need some sort of special curriculum to help him catch up. He could take adult school to catch up. etc etc.

I'm thinking that if he skipped to 10th grade it wouldn't do him any favors if he's missing a shitload of foundational knowledge.

The thing is the schools here only allow a certain age in a certain grade, he's 16 and in the 7th grade so it's only natural they'd start asking for payment. He comes from a poor family so paying it wouldn't be an option. I know this guy personally, I have known him for 9 years. He is my best friend and I can even call him a brother. I talked to him about a possible chance of getting to high school and he even said that all of his free/elective courses he will instead do 9th grade courses. He just needs help and no one is helping him on it. His family is having issues and unfortunately, that made it hard to focus on school, even though he was ready for high school, they still kept him back because they felt he had insufficient knowledge about things. but that man might just be the smartest person I know, so we cannot let him down, we have to make sure Alex makes it to high school!

sounds like a real catch 22. if you guys are signing this, it'd also do wonders to spread it out on facebook so y'all can get the signatures ASAP~
