Research Report 36 is a revision of Research
Report 30 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 im-
proving statistical services of the State Depart-
ment of Education under the provisions of Title X,
National Defense Education Act. (750)










PROMOTION AND NON-PROMOTION IN FLORIDA

PUBLIC SCHOOLS, 1963-64


This is the seventh tabulation prepared by the Division of Research

presenting 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 1963-64 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 are not included, since promotion policies for pupils

in special classes vary from the policies in regular classes. Also excluded

are the University School and Florida A & M University School in Leon County

and P. K. Young Laboratory School in Alachua County. Brevard County operates

under a different grade organization from most other counties and is excluded

from all totals. Therefore, this report deals primarily with pupils in regular

classes who were in school at the close of the 1963-64 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, a few pupils

can make a difference of several percentage points. 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 some 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 1963-64 NOT PROMOTED

Number Not Promoted Percent Not Promoted
Grades 1-6 32,472 5.25%
Grades 7-9 19,560 7.40
Grades 10-12 11.960 6.11

Total 63,992 5.93%


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

grade at the close of the 1963-64 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 six years.


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

in each county.


Table 4 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 5 gives the number of pupils in each county taught in separate

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

exceptional child unit. There were 8,014 pupils in this classification; 68.7

percent were classified as elementary and 31.3 percent as secondary pupils.










Pupils receiving supplemental services from exceptional child teachers are

counted with regular pupils and are not included in Table 5.


Also excluded from consideration as promoted or non-promoted are 1,029

pupils taking special work in vocational schools, 2,048 pupils in university

laboratory schools, and 39,988 pupils in Brevard County. Promotion, in such

classes, is not on the same basis as in classes in most other schools.


The pupils in these excluded groups amount to about 3.8 percent of the

total number of pupils in school at the close of the year in the state.


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

1963-64 is estimated at $23,695,808 for the 63,992 pupils. This estimate is

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

the 1963-64 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 separate exceptional child classes, special vocational classes, laboratory

schools and Brevard County.


Actually, the estimated cost is theoretical, and represents 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 7,300 pupils between the close of the eighth month of school

and the close of the school year. (See Research Report 34, Analysis of Member-

ship at the Close of Each Month of School. 1963-64.)


Altogether, 12,832 first graders were not promoted at the close of the

1963-64 school year. If some acceptable remedial action could be taken to cut

in half the failure rate in the first grade alone, a theoretical saving of

$2,388,000 could result. While this theoretical saving would not be realized

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 promotion

and non-promotion. The data in this report do not answer basic questions, but

do suggest issues on which inadequate information 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?


-4-










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.
