That is awesome and congrats to her!!! I think we are on the same page Were my child/ren struggling I would rethink our vacation/hire a tutor/whatever it took. My kids aren't there yet so I'm speaking hypothetically, this is just our plan/my theory.
But what about the kids that are just not academically minded? I loved school and did very well. My brother on the other hand struggled with every subject. He would try and just not get it. Today he is a manager of a casino and makes $150 thousand a year. Clearly his academic failings have not hurt him.
One of my kids is amazingly gifted but the other one struggles with reading. He goes to special classes and has trouble with self esteem. I think for him it is more important that we spend time with him as a person letting him know that he is worth more to us then just a reading grade. We believe in living up to the best of your potential but not all kids are equal. Doing your best is what really counts.
One of my kids struggles a lot more academically than the rest. But she is a good listener at school, does her homework responsibly, works hard on the things that are challenging to her. Taking her out of school on an very infrequent basis would not change anything just because she doesn't figure out work with the same ease the others do.
