Does Grade Level Retention Work?

This week's question comes from P.J. Vermont, who asks:

Does grade-level retention work as an accountability tool for students and parents?

The issues of grade level retention and social promotion come up frequently for teachers and administrators, so it's an important question to explore further...

Please leave your responses to P.J.'s question in the comments section of this post. I'll share a few of them next Wednesday, where I'll also publish my response and ideas from invited guests.

Anyone whose question is selected for this weekly column can choose one free book from a selection of twelve published by Eye On Education. Thanks, P.J.!

You can send questions to me at [email protected].When you send in your question, let me know if I can use your real name if it's selected or if you'd prefer remaining anonymous and have a pseudonym in mind.

I'm looking forward to learning from people's responses!
