Current thinking on retention
Recent research shows that, for the most part, holding kids back a grade isn’t the best practice. The National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) reports that some kids do better in school the first year or two after being held back. But it also says that this effect doesn’t last.
The earlier the repeat year is done, the better i.e. grade 1 or 2. Grade R repeats are generally only done if a child is delayed in language, has fine and gross motor delays or is emotionally very immature. Every child is unique in their needs and therefore each case should be treated carefully.
