Purpose of the Study: One of the most persistent problems of education is that of determining a satisfactory method of promoting pupils from level to level. Therefore the purpose of this study is to examine some of the factors in Walland School that aid in determining pupil progress to see whether there is need for changes in promotional policies and curriculum offerings.

With this purpose in mind, the following hypothesis is advanced: A study of factors upon which the teachers of Walland School have based non-promotion will show that the curriculum throughout the seven years of the survey did not always meet the needs of the pupils.
