PROMOTION AND NON-PROMOTION IN FLORIDA

PUBLIC SCHOOLS, 1962-63


This is the sixth 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 1962-63 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 1962-63

school year.


The data in this report should be interpreted with extreme 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. Special situations

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

separately and 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 classes or 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 available by race even though previous studies have shown apparent

differences in promotional patterns. Schools in many counties now operate

on an integrated basis. Principals annual attendance reports do not carry a

designation of race.

MEMBERSHIP AT CLOSE OF 1962-63 NOT PROMOTED

Number Not Promoted Percent Not Promoted
Grades 1-6 32,796 5.29%
Grades 7-9 20,495 7.75
Grades 10-12 12,107 6.62

Total 65,397 6.13%


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

grade at the close of the 1962-63 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 five years.


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

in each county.


Table 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 or an excep-

tional child unit. There were 7,981 pupils in this classification; 70.6 per-

cent were classified as elementary and 29.4 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 1,624

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

1962-63 is estimated at $21,588,125 for the 65,397 pupils. This estimate is

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

the 1962-63 current expenditure per pupil in average daily attendance in

each county. The State total is a summation of the estimated cost of re-

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

in exceptional 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

constant, 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. Some pupils

reported as non-promoted may make up deficiencies and be promoted.


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

known that the net withdrawals in some counties especially in secondary schools







are substantial during each year. Principals' Annual Reports indicate a net loss

of about eight thousand pupils between the close of the eighth month of school

and the close of the school year. (See Research Report -29, Analysis of Member-

ship at the Close of Each Month of School. 1962-63.)


Altogether, 12,640 first graders were not promoted at the close of the

1962-63 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 $2,163,000 could result. While this theoretical savings would not be real-

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

construct over a hundred new classrooms.


Needed Study

There is a need for extensive study and research in the 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-
promotion?

11. Does the administrative organization of schools, especially at
the junior high level, have any effect on the rate of non-pro-
motion? 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-pro-
moted 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.
