Research Report-97 is a summary of the State

Department of Education. Basic data for this
report were compiled by Mr. Ed R. Allen, Jr.,

PROMOTION AND NON-PROMDTION IN FLORIDA


PUBLIC SCHOOLS, .1970-71



Since 1956-57 the Bureau of Research has prepared this tabulation 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 1970-71 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.
Therefore, this report deals primarily with pupils in regular classes who were in
school at the close of the 1970-71 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 effect 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 reported 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 1970-71
is estimated at $36,559,011 for the 45,276 pupils as compared to $35,528,149 for
48,276 pupils in 1969-70. This estimate is reached by multiplying the number of
non-promoted pupils in each district by the 1970-71 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.

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,
grades 1-12, of about 13,643 pupils between the close of the eighth month of
school and the close of the school year. (See Research Report 93, Analysis fL
Membership a the Close of Each Month fL School, 19J0-71.)

This represents a loss of only 1.02 percent, but if just half this amount,
6,821, had remained in school and had not been promoted, the number of non-
promotions would have increased from 3.37 percent to 3.86 percent.

Altogether, 8,389 first graders were not promoted at the close of the
1970-71 school year. If some acceptable remedial action could be taken to cut
in half the failure rate in the first sade alone, a theoretical saving of
$3,386,933 could result. While this theoretical saving would not be realized
immediately, it is equal to enough to pay about 367 additional teachers.


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 are available. 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
dropouts?

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

9. 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?

10. What are the underlying causes of non-promotion? What can be done
about them at the local level? At the district level?

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 J is a comparitive State summary of the number and percent of pupils
in each grade at the close of the 1969-70 and 1970-71 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 2 gives the number of promotions and non-promotions for each grade
in each district.
Table A 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 gives the number of pupils in each district taught in separate
exceptional child classes, usually under the supervision of a teacher in an
exceptional child unit. There were 20,193 pupils in this classification; 66.41
percent were classified as elementary and 33.59 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.
