If for some researchers, a pupil who didn't master the objectives of training must take the school year, such is not the case for others. The increase doesn't improve the pupil's output; on the contrary, it plays negatively on her incentive, her degree of stress, her esteem of oneself, her social integration, her behavior and even on her personality. After analysis of the data of this paper, we have concluded that the increase is not beneficial, nor to the learners, nor to the state that spends a lot of money and means for these pupils in school difficulty. Thus, the state must consider other options to avoid the waste of funds, which had to help the Congolese school to be performed.

Abstract: (french)

Si pour certains chercheurs, un élève qui n’a pas maîtrisé les objectifs d’apprentissage doit reprendre l’année scolaire, tel n’est pas le cas pour d’autres. Le redoublement n’améliore pas le rendement de l’élève, au contraire, il joue négativement sur sa motivation, son degré de stress, son estime de soi, son intégration sociale, son comportement et même sur sa personnalité. Après analyse des données de cet article, nous avons conclu que le redoublement n’est pas bénéfique, ni aux apprenants qu’à l’État qui dépense beaucoup d’argent et des moyens pour ces élèves en difficulté scolaire. Ainsi, l’État doit envisager d’autres options pour éviter le gaspillage des fonds, lesquels devaient aider l’école congolaise à aller de l’avant.
