PROMOTION AND NON-PROMOTION IN FLORIDA

5 PUBLIC SCHOOLS, 1965-66


This is the ninth 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 1965-66 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 in Leon County, P. K. Yonge Laboratory School in

Alachua County, and Nova Elementary and Nova Junior-Senior High in Broward

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 1965-66 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. Principals'annual attendance reports

do not carry a designation of race.


MEMBERSHIP AT CLOSE OF 1965-66 NOT PROMOTED

Number Not Promoted Percent Not Promoted

Grades 1-6 29,916 4.64%
Grades 7-9 19,203 6.77
Grades 10-12 12,640 6.13

Total 61,759 5.44%


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

grade at the close of the 1965-66 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 seven 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-teach-

ing 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 9,226 pupils in this classification; 71.4

percent were classified as elementary and 28.6 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

2,427 pupils taking special work in.vocational schools, 1,633 pupils in

university laboratory schools, 51,252 pupils in Brevard County, and 2,474

pupils in the Nova School in Broward 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 5.6 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

1965-66 is estimated at $27,285,549 for the 61,759 pupils. This estimate

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

by the 1965-66 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, experimental 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 dropouts, although it is

known that the net withdrawals in some counties especially in secondary

schools are substantial during each year. Principals' Annual Reports


-3-








indicate a net loss of about 8,535 pupils between the close of the eighth

month of school and the close of the school year, (See Research Report 49,

Analysis of Membership at the Close of Each Month of School, 1965-66)

Altogether, 12,620 first graders were not promoted at the close of the

1965-66 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 $2,821,000 could result. While this theoretical saving would not be

realized immediately, it is equal to enough to pay about 440 additional

teachers or to construct over eighty-five 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.

2o 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?

60 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.
