Relation of Academic History and Demographic Variables to Grade Retention in Lebanon.
El-Hassan, Karma
Journal of Educational Research, v91 n5 p279-88 May-Jun 1998
Investigated relations between certain antecedent variables in Lebanese students' academic history and home environment and frequency of grade repetition. Information from 1,633 retainees representing all grade levels indicated that most entered school early, experienced frequent repetitions, and changed schools. Most were male, over-age for their classes, and from rural public schools. Parental education and occupational levels were low. (SM)
