Repeating: An Overlooked Problem of Latin American Education
Schiefelbein, Ernesto
Comparative Education Review, 19, 3, 468-87, Oct 75
Typically, the cause of the low rate of retention in primary schools in Latin America is assumed to be socioeconomic. This paper attempted to show that this definition of retention is incorrect, that desertion is highly over-estimated, and that the root cause of low retention in primary education is repetition.
