Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II sequence

Does anyone know of any research dealing with the sequence of Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II? I received a letter from a teacher in our state wondering if there was any research to support 9th students lack of matuirty to be successful in geometry. It appears form the letter that there school has 8th grade algebra, followed by geometry for 9th grade. Her question was would it be better to have the students take Algebra II in 9th grade and save geometry for 10th grade?
later.....
