PROMOTION AND NON-PROMOTION IN FLORIDA

PUBLIC SCHOOLS, 1969-70



Since 1956-57 the Bureau of Research has prepared this tabulation pre-

senting 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 1969-70 school year.

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

Pupils in separate exceptional child classes 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 1969-70 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 was not evaluated.

Another situation which may be misinterpreted is found in those districts

having some ungraded classes or schools. In such systems a child may be re-

ported as non-promoted but later progress may permit him to enter a higher grade

and continue on schedule without the stigma of failure.










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.

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

1969-70 is estimated at $35,528,149 for the 48,789 pupils as compared to

$37,100,535 for 57,569 pupils in 1968-69. This estimate is reached by

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

1969-70 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 and Brevard County.

Actually, the estimated cost is theoretical, and represents 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. 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 in-

dicate a net loss, grades 1-12, of about 11,468 pupils between the close of

the eighth month of school and the close of the school year. (See Research

Report, Analysis of Membership at the Close of Each Month of School, 1969-70.)









This represents a loss of only .86 percent, but if just half this amount,

5,734, had remained in school and had not be promoted, the number of non-

promotions would have increased from 3.66 percent to 4.1 percent.

Altogether, 9,550 first graders were not promoted at the close of the

1969-70 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

$3,477,155 could result. While this theoretical saving would not be realized

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

to construct and equip over 100 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 does not answer basic questions, but

does suggest issues on which inadequate data areavailable. Some examples are:

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? Is any
reduced rate in higher grades due to those students becoming
drop-outs?









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 effects on the non-
promotion rate? On school attendance?

8. Is academic achievement higher in school systems with a high
non-promotion rate? Is the higher rate justified? What are
the alternatives?

9. What part does personal and educational guidance play in non-
promotion? What would be considered as adequate guidance
services?

10. 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? What effect has the
middle school structure had on non-promotion rates?

11. 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?

12. 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?


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 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 Bureau of Research would like to be supplied with the results

of any studies in this area conducted at the local level.

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

in each grade at the close of the 1968-69 and 1969-70 school years 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.

Table 2 which gives the state-wide percent of pupils not promoted by

grade for each of the last nine 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 17,752 pupils in this classification; 67.56'

percent were classified an elementary and 32.44 percent as secondary pupils.

Pupils receiving supplemental services from exceptional child teachers and

those students in vocational schools are counted with regular pupils and are

not included in Table 5.

Also excluded from consideration as promoted or non-promoted are 59,978

pupils in Brevard County. Promotion in this district is not on the same basis

as in classes in most other school districts. 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.
