Research Report-69 is a summary of the State
membership data for Florida public schools
prepared by the Division of Research of the
Florida State Department of Education. Basic
data for this report were compiled by Mr.
James C. Impara, Research Consultant. This
report revises Research Report-62. (850)










PROMOTION AND NON-PROMOTION IN FLORIDA

PUBLIC SCHOOLS, 1967-68



This is the eleventh 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 1967-68 school year.

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

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. 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 1967-68 school year.

The data in this report should be interpreted with extreme caution

especially as they apply to an individual district. 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 districts

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 1967-68 NOT PROMOTED

Number Not Promoted Percent Not Promoted

Grades 1-6 27,655 4.10%
Grades 7-9 18,708 6.07
Grades 10-12 13,915 6.18

Total 60,278 4.99%


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

grade at the close of the 1967-68 school year who were not promoted. The

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

years, i.e., a gradual decline. This is shown in Table 2 which gives the

percent of pupils not promoted by grade for each of the last eight years.

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

in each district.

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 district taught in separate

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

exceptional child unit. There were 11,256 pupils in this classification; 71.9

percent were classified an elementary and 28.1 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 1,099

pupils taking special work in vocational schools, and 59,512 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 4.8 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

1967-68 is estimated at 34,025,123 for the 60,278 pupils. This estimate is

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

the 1967-68 current expenditure per pupil in average daily attendance in each

district. The State total is a summation of the estimated cost of re-teaching

non-promoted pupils in each district This estimate excludes pupils in separate

exceptional child classes, special vocational classes, 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 districts especially in secondary schools are

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

of about 10,538 pupils between the close of the eighth month of school an.

the close of the school year, (See Research Report 68, Analysis of Membership

at the Close of Each Month of School, 1967-68)











Altogether, 11,895 first graders were not promoted at the close of the

1967-68 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 $3,304,000 could result. While this theoretical saving would not be

realized immediately, it is equal to enough to pay about 435 additional teachers

or to construct over ninety-one 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 district to
district? From school to school, within the same district?
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-
promotion rate?


-4-










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

There 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 districts 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,
