The principal purpose of this study was to gather information showing the effects of non-promotion on the achievement of those children, currently enrolled in the Sunnyside Public School District, who had been retained in the first grade. The purpose of the study was (1.) to determine the primary reasons given by the teacher for effecting the retention; (2) to show the progress of each of these children in reading and, in some cases, in arithmetic and spelling during his subsequent elementary school years.
