New York City uses incentives to cut chronic absenteeism in public schools
from The Hub at Johns Hopkins
Mentors, wake-up calls to students, incentives and weekly "student success" meetings led by principals helped New York City significantly cut chronic absenteeism in schools, according to a report by the Everyone Graduates Center at the Johns Hopkins University School of Education. The report examines the impact of New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg's task force on truancy, chronic absenteeism and school engagement, a program that spanned 2010 to 2013 and reached more than 60,000 students.
