I feel that by the time a child gets in the middle school, it is known whether they are academically inclined or not. I think that they need to start vocational skills in the middle school for these kids that are not academically inclined. My son is a dropout, and is doing well for himself. I knew when he was in elementary that he was not academically inclined.
