Influence of Child Independence, Gender, and Birthdate on Kindergarten Teachers' Recommendations for Retention.
Bergin, David A.; And Others
Journal of Research in Childhood Education, v10 n2 p152-59 Spr-Sum 1996
Used hypothetical student profiles to investigate factors other than achievement that influence kindergarten teachers' retention decisions. Found that teachers were not more likely to recommend retention for boys, nor for children born in August, although the trend was to retain younger students. Teachers were more likely to retain children described as dependent and somewhat immature. (HTH)
