What do I do when my son's teacher wants to put him in basic skills for reading when he doesn't have an issue with reading?

Sometimes kids are reading but when teachers do assessments, they learn that at child is having trouble with something like de-coding, a skill that they will need to take them to the next level of reading. Kids usually benefit from the one-on-one attention that these recovery programs provide, even if they are on the cusp of needing help.
