The boy who did not pass the regents wanted to retake it in August. The first day of summer school he sought out people he thought would help him. Two were deep in conversation, probably discussing the best place to get a drink and did not even acknowledge his existence. Another looked at the young man and exclaimed "You don't know anything. Mrs. Fish, your ninth grade teachers is awful and you never learned any algebra." The boy left. His future is uncertain. He has no clue as to whether he can take the test or not. No one wanted to be bothered. You see, the boy has an IEP and the administrators only want him to disappear.
