McD required McCabe to stay back due to his age. He entered public school system a year early so now he’s actually on age. He was the youngest in his class at McD before reclassifying. BTW he is one of the top 5 students academically at McD.
He may be one of the youngest at McD, but only if the rest are also holdbacks. SP would not allow him to re-class because he was doing well in school and athletically. McD was happy to allow it, might even have encouraged it, but it's not because he was too young. March 2004 birthday. He started public school on age, but even then he was too good to attend the public school for which we was zoned - they bussed him outside of his school zone.
