Students required to repeat same grade next year?

Lately, there has been some debating going around which the public never knew until now, and it’s about having students repeating the same grade next year! Some officials say that in the pandemic and on online classes students have not been able to learn at the normal pace. So therefore the knowledge of the children is much less than it should be if they went to in person school. They say that it would be best if all students would be required to repeat the same grade next year! Usually repeating the same grade means the that those students are behind in their studies but now that’s the case for almost all the kids in America so it is very likely that all students in America will be required to repeat the same grade! All students from those in pre-school to those in college!
