And more understanding of the set of courses of the retained grade that will help the students to be prepared to attain the academic and social standards of the succeeding level, in that way the prospect of intellectual and social success will rise (Hughes. 2008).
According to Jimerson, Woehr, Kaufman & Anderson (2004), the use of grade retention has increased in the past 25 years, regardless of the research that did not succeed to prove its usefulness. About 2 million students are being retained every year, and students that are held back before ninth grade is ranging between 30% to 50%.
