Talent & education

How often does your school hold back kindergartners?

Almost 14,000 kindergarten students were held back for a second year of kindergarten classes in the 2010-11 school year. A Bridge Magazine analysis of state data found wide disparities in the rates of such kindergarten retention, however. And these rates are not tied to academic success, poverty or other research factors.

In some districts, one-third or more of the a kindergarten class will be held back each year – as a matter of routine and policy.

Michigan’s 13,000 ‘redshirt’ kindergarteners

Using data compiled by Public Sector Consultants, a Lansing-based research firm, Bridge has created a searchable database of districts on kindergarten retention. (Please note that not all public school districts will be in the database; state datasets do not give detailed breakdowns on any district that retains fewer than 10 students in a grade level in a year.)

    I would be interested in knowing how many students attended half day kindergarten the first time, then full day kindergarten the second. We must also remember that this is a decision made by both the parents and the school system working together in the best interest of the child. With the kindergarten requirements being so much more than social development and more like we remember first or second grade, many little ones need that extra development time.

    Harrison Community Schools used to have a Junior first grade for students who might otherwise have been recommended for another year of kindergarten. We tried to staff it with a strong teacher who was skilled in dealing with students with academic challenges and provide additional support for the teacher , and we kept the class size low. This program had to be eliminated when it was judged to be a planned retention. Our goal was to provide intense extra help before students fell so far behind their same aged peers and before they were in special education programs. We feel it helped some children, but we were forced to eliminate it or lose the funding we were using for the program.
    If this is about one size and one pace fits all, sadly that doesn’t work for many students.
    If it is about saving money by not providing an extra year for some kids , then let’s call it what it is.

    This data should be expanded to indicate the level of participation in school based early childhood 4 year old; programs and Head Start. I suspect there is a correlation..
