Teachers are complaining that the kids don't understand the concept in the lesson. Is your advice to move on or should the teachers reteach the lessons.

In a typical teaching environment, teaches should pace each lesson to last one day. Teachers customize the lesson by selecting which (if any) fluencies to do, whether to do the application problem, which examples problems in the Concept Development, and which problems of the Problem Set are the "must do" problems. Even when students seem to be totally confused by a lesson, 90% of the time the proper thing for the teacher to do is to move on to the next lesson. I don't recommend many days specifically devoted to on Fridays. Rather, I give a short culminating quiz at the end of each topic. This culminating quiz is formative for me and acts as review for the students. it kills two birds with one stone.
