Characteristics of Retainees and Early Precursors of Retention in Grade: Who Is Held Back?
Dauber, Susan L.; And Others
Merrill-Palmer Quarterly, v39 n3 p326-43 Jul 1993
Examined predictors of first- through fourth-grade retention of inner-city public school children. Retained children were more often male and African American and had less educated parents than nonretained children. Children retained in first grade differed from later retainees only in the severity of their initial academic skill deficiencies. (MM)
