Student Mobility in N.Y.C.
“From One to Eight: A Longitudinal Portrait of the First Grade Class of 1995-1996”
Standard academic progress—defined as students’ being continuously enrolled and promoted each year to the next grade—was the exception, not the rule, among the more than 86,000 students who began 1st grade in the fall of 1995 in New York City public schools, a report has found.
Researchers at New York University found that only about one-third of the students in that 1st grade cohort progressed to the 8th grade on time. The study, which used student-level data provided by the city’s education department, also found that fewer than six in 10 students who started 1st grade in 1995, and were not in full-time special education, remained enrolled in a New York City public school eight years later.
