Where Is Lake Wobegone, Anyway? The Controversy Surrounding Social Promotion.
Rothstein, Richard
Phi Delta Kappan, v80 n3 p195-98 Nov 1998
The dilemma of what to do with children who do not progress "normally" is not new, and did not arise because educators grew too timid to uphold academic standards. The problem is an unavoidable consequence of compulsory education. Advantages of social promotion still outweigh difficulties. Deterioration of school standards cannot be blamed on social promotion.
