But yes, have come across instances where the child wants to remain in the present school so as to continue his/her life at the top. But I do wonder if that child knows what he/she is missing out on.
Not necessarily the child/parents expectation.
I'm sure we read in KSP before that some schools do 'recommend' learning centres to parents when the kids are not meeting their expectation. Donch know how true but this kinda things cannot be un-remembered.
