More than 6 million kids are chronically absent. What gets them back in class?
from The Christian Science Monitor
In schools across the country, teachers have long fretted about the challenges of reaching students who don't come to class. Education researchers echo those concerns, saying that missing 10 percent of the school year — just two days a month — is a strong predictor of the likelihood of dropping out of school. This week, the Education Department provided the first comprehensive look at the issue through its 2013-2014 Civil Rights Data Collection, an annual report that examines a variety of issues facing students in schools across the country, including school discipline.
