A study of 278 kindergarten through sixth-grade students in Hebron, Nebraska (follow-up studies have been done periodically), conducted by Dr. James Uphoff, Ed.D., author of School Readiness & Transition Programs: Real Facts from Real Schools (Modern Learning Press; 1995), shows that younger children in a grade are more likely to experience problems. Those include failing grades, being labeled as "learning disabled," or scoring lower on achievement tests than the older kids.
"While the youngest children [in a grade] made up 23 percent of the total population of my study, they made up 75 percent of the 'failed one or more year' subgroup," says Uphoff, a professor and Chairman of the Department of Education at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio.
