My son started his school life in the US last week.
He was allocated to the second grade, although he had been first grade in Japan before coming here.
It caused because of the difference of school year between the US and Japan.
In the US the school year starts in September, on the other hand in Japan it starts in April.
Since his birth month is May, he was six years old when he enrolled school in Japan.
However he is seven years old now which is the age of the second grade in the US.
He has two handicaps, English and school experience, to overcome.
What can I do for him?
