Social Promotion and Students with Disabilities: Issues and Challenges in Developing State Policies - This study looks at existing and emerging state policies on social promotion to determine the extent that students with disabilities are included or excluded. Analysis showed that policies varied considerably in terms of the bases for promotion decisions, but that all states used test performance as the primary basis for decisions. To provide remedial coursework to students, most states relied on summer school, extended-day or after-school programs. (Rachel F. Quenemoen, Camilla A. Lehr, Martha L. Thurlow, Sandra J. Thompson and Sara Bolt, National Center on Educational Outcomes, Synthesis Report #34, June 2000)...
