Could you please shed some light on this? Am I right in interpreting the following?
to get behind with = be late in paying instalments for something.
Don't get behind with the payments, otherwise you will lose your car.
to get behing = postpone something you could do in time.
Don't get behind your homework, otherwise you won't go up to the next level.
So, 'do not get behind your homework, or you will have to stay here one more year' is fine?
Now it is crystal-clear:
To get behind with - have not done as much work or made as many payments as one should have
She’d been sick so often that, she was getting behind with her schoolwork.
To get behind - support an idea, project, etc., or help someone in what they are trying to do
She claims the publishers never really got behind her new book.
