At school entry, generally in kindergarten, children join a milieu that holds behavioral expectations to which they must adjust. Failure in this regard may result in referral to special education classes, retention, or simply a stressful year for the maladjusted child and the teacher. In the case of referral or retention, the teacher’s professional judgment is given considerable weight in classifying the child for purposes of educational placement.
