Research Report-24 is a revision of Research
Report-17 prepared by the Division of Research
of the Florida State Department of Education.

The preparation of these reports is one phase
in the implementation of Florida's plan for
improving statistical services of the State
Department of Education under the provisions
of Title I, National Defenp6 Education Act.









PROMOTION AND NON-PROMOTION IN FLORIDA
PUBLIC SCHOOLS, 1961-62


This is the fifth report prepared by the Division of Research present-

ing statistics on promotion and non-promotion of pupils in Florida public

schools. Data for this study are taken from annual reports submitted by

public school principals covering the 1961-62 school year.


An analysis is made on a grade by grade basis as well as by depart-

ments. Pupils in separate exceptional child classes and pupils in special

vocational divisions have been considered separately from students in

regular classes since promotion policies for pupils in special classes vary

from the policies in regular classes. Therefore, this report deals primarily

with pupils in regular classes who were in school at the close of the 1961-

62 school year.


The data in this report should be interpreted with caution especially

as they apply to an individual county. In some instances due to the small

number of pupils as a result of detailed breakdowns, one or two pupils can

make a difference of several percentage points. Other special situations

such as the influx of Cuban refugees in Dade County are not considered

separately and thus influence averages. This report does not take into

account pupils who make up deficiencies during the summer and thus are

enabled to go into the next grade. The effects of the increased emphasis

on remedial reading and make-up work during the summer cannot be evaluated

at this time. Another situation which may be misinterpreted is found in

those counties having ungraded primary schools. In such systems a child

may be reported as non-promoted but later progress may permit him to enter

a higher grade and continue on schedule.







Primarily this is a statistical study prepared in an effort to establish

trends of value for future planning. Analyses of promotion and non-promotion

are not presented by race even though previous studies have shown apparent

differences in promotional patterns. Schools in a number of counties now

operate on an integrated basis. Principals annual attendance reports do not

carry a designation of race.

MEMBERSHIP AT CLOSE OF 1961-62 NOT PROMOTED

Number Not Promoted Percent Not Promoted
Grades 1-6 31,342 5.25%
Grades 7-9 19,598 7.57
Grades 10-12 10,5h9 6.51
Total 62,023 6.09%

Table 1 is a State summary of the number and percent of pupils in each

grade at the close of the 1961-62 school year who were not promoted. The

general state-wide pattern of non-promotion is about the same as in previous

years. This is shown in Table 2 which gives the percent of pupils not pro-

moted by grade for each of the last four years.

Table 3 gives the number of promotions and non-promotions for each grade

in each county.

TaUe 4 gives the percent of non-promotion by grade by county.

Table 5 shows the percent of regular membership promoted by grade group,

the current expense per pupil, and the theoretical cost of re-teaching pupils

who were not promoted.

Table 6 gives the number of pupils in each county taught in separate

exceptional child classes, under the supervision of a teacher on an excep-

tional child unit. There were 7,772 pupils in this classification; 68.9 per-

cent were classified as elementary and 31.1 percent as secondary pupils.

Pupils receiving supplemental services from exceptional child teachers are

counted with regular pupils and are not included in Table 6.








Also excluded from consideration as promoted or non-promoted are 1,223

pupils taking special work in vocational and day-trade school divisions.

Promotion, in such classes, is not on the same basis as in classes of regu-

larly enrolled pupils. In some cases, complete information is not available

for pupils in special classes due to incomplete reports.


The pupils in both of these excluded groups amount to less than one

percent of the total number of pupils in school at the close of the year,

so these special classes have little effect on over-all percentages.


The theoretical cost of re-teaching pupils who were not promoted in

1961-62 is estimated at $20,376,72h for the 62,023 pupils. This estimate is

reached by multiplying the number of non-promoted pupils in each county by

the 1961-62 current expenditure per pupil in average daily attendance in each

county. The State total is a summation of theestimated cost of re-teaching

non-promoted pupils in each county. This estimate excludes pupils in excep-

tional child and special vocational classes who were not promoted.


Actually, the estimated costs are theoretical, and represent an over-

simplification. The assumption is made that per pupil costs will remain con-

stant, and that the non-promoted pupils will remain in school to graduate.

Obviously, some of the pupils who are not promoted will withdraw from school

before graduation and per pupil costs are likely to increase.

No consideration is given in this report to drop-outs, although it is

known that the net withdrawals in some counties are substantial during each

year. Principals' Annual Reports indicate a net loss of more than eight

thousand pupils between the close of the eighth month of school and the close

of the school year. (See Research Report -23, Analysis of Membership at the

Close of Each Month of School, 1961-62.)

Altogether, 11,755 first graders were not promoted at the close of the

1961-62 school year. If some acceptable remedial action could be taken to

cut in half the failure rate in the first grade alone, a theoretical savings

of $1,936,000 would result. While this theoretical savings would not be real-

ized immediately, it is equal to enough to pay 400 additional teachers or to

construct almost a hundred new classrooms.

Needed. Study

There is a need for extensive study and research in this area of pro-

motion and non-promotion. The material presented in this report does not

answer basic questions, but it does suggest issues on which inadequate infor-

mation is available.

1. What is the relationship between non-promotion and irregular
attendance? Is this an important factor? This leads into
questions involving the causes of irregular attendance.

2. Do pupils who are not promoted tend to drop out of school?
In an effort to establish and maintain "high" standards, is
the principle of providing an opportunity for optimum growth
of each pupil sacrificed?

3. What is the relationship between non-promotion and type of
curriculum? How well does the program of the school meet
the needs of pupils who are not promoted?

4. Does a high rate of non-promotion in lower grades tend to
reduce the rate of non-promotion in higher grades?

5. Are promotion standards and,.practices consistent from county
to county? From school to school, within the same county?
From section to section within the same grade in the same
school?

6. What are the emotional and psychological effects of non-
promotion? Is there any relationship between non-promotion
and disciplinary problems?

7. Does organized remedial work, special homework, or individual
coaching appear to have any appreciable effect on the non-pro-
motion rate?

8. What is the effect of stability of residence on non-promotion?
Does movement from one school to another during the year contri-
bute to non-promotion?








9. Is academic achievement higher in school systems with a high non-
promotion rate? Is the higher rate justified?

10. What part does personal and educational guidance play in non-pro-
motion?

11. Does the administrative organization of schools, especially at the
junior high level, have any effect on the rate of non-promotion?
Does attaching an eighth or ninth grade to a senior high school
result in higher non-promotion?

12. What are the underlying causes of non-promotion? What can be done
about them at the local level? At the county level? At the State
level?

13. What is the purpose of non-promotion? Is it for the non-promoted
child's benefit? For the benefit of other pupils? To enhance the
reputation of the school? A punitive measure?

14. What is a reasonable rate of non-promotion? What is an excessive
rate, and under what conditions?

15. What is the relationship between class size and non-promotion?
Between teacher experience and non-promotion? Between length of
school day and non-promotion?

These are but a few of the many questions that come to mind. None of

the answers are easy, and most of the problems must be worked out at the

local level, where detailed data are available. Most counties have capable

personnel on their staff who can undertake the task of finding the answers

to one or more of these questions if time can be made available to them.


The Division of Research would like to be supplied with the results of

any studies in this area conducted at the local level.
