Are we setting them up for failure?

I have a young man on my Robot Team who isn't a very good student. I'm not sure why, because I haven't had him in the classroom, but I'm concerned right now, because he has been STAAR testing for 3 days, and will be testing for the 4th.

Apparently he didn't do well enough on the 9th grade STAAR tests so we had him retake those tests on Monday and Tuesday. He's a 10th grader, so we're having him take those tests. What is 11th grade going to look like for him? Is he going to have to continue to retake the tests?

When does he give up?
