Were you ever held back a grade in K-12?

My 4th grade teachers wanted me to skip 5th grade. My grandma said I was already a year younger than everyone else, so she wouldn't let me.

I had enough credits to graduate my junior year. I just needed to take Government and Economics. My school wouldn't let you take them until your senior year.

Had my grandma let me skip a grade and my school let me take those two classes during my junior year, I could've graduated high school at 15.

For two weeks when I moved to North Carolina, believe it or not! Until they can "verify" my school records. This was back in 84.
