This communication is based on an investigation of the beliefs underlying the positions of Brazilian primary teachers concerning grade repetition (GR). The questionnaire elaborated by Crahay and Marcoux (2009) has been presented in 2014 in a convenience sample of 6,000 Portuguese and multi
-subject primary teachers in Brazil. Our main results indicate the presence of a factor, which denotes a strong adherenceto GR by teachers in the Brazilian sample; the results also indicate that such adherence is correlated with elitist beliefs and a conception of intelligence as an innate characteristic, but also the belief that repetition is a crucial factor of learning. The study also documents the misunderstanding and ignorance of Brazilian teachers in regards of educational researches concerning the effect of GR.
