Rimm-Kaufman, Sara E.; Pianta, Robert C.; Cox, Martha J.
Early Childhood Research Quarterly, v15 n2 p147-66 2000
This study surveyed 3,595 teachers to determine judgments of prevalence and types of problems children present upon entering kindergarten. Up to 46% reported that half their class or more had specific problems in any of several transition areas. Rates of perceived problems were related to school minority composition; district poverty level; and, for certain behaviors, school metropolitan status. (HTH)
