Repeating a Grade and School Engagement

Overall, 10.6 percent of children aged 6-17 years have repeated a grade since starting kindergarten (data not shown). Among children with at least one emotional, behavioral, or developmental condition, this proportion is 26.8 percent. Of those with one condition, 22.2 percent had repeated a grade; for those with two conditions, 29.7 percent had repeated a grade; and 38.2 percent of children with three or more conditions had done so (data not shown). Among children with no emotional, behavioral, or developmental conditions, 8.0 percent had repeated a grade.

Likewise, 80.5 percent of children aged 6-17 years are reported by their parents to be adequately engaged in school, meaning that their parents reported that they usually or always care about doing well in school and do all required homework. Among children with at least one emotional, behavioral, or developmental condition, this proportion was 54.6 percent. For those with one condition, this proportion was 59.7 percent; for those with two conditions, 51.1 percent; and for those with three or more conditions, 42.5 percent. Among children with no emotional, behavioral, or developmental conditions, it was 84.5 percent (data not shown).
