Ending Social Promotion: Results from the First Two Years - A study of Chicago's program to end social promotion found that 56% of students who attended the mandatory Summer Bridge Program improved enough to be promoted to the next grade. But it also showed that many of those same students were not able to maintain progress and, a year later, were at risk of failing again. (Melissa Roderick, Anthony S. Bryk, Brian A. Jacob, John Q. Easton, and Elaine Allensworth, Consortium on Chicago School Research, December 1999)...
