What are schools really saying when they reward perfect attendance?
from The Huffington Post (commentary)
Miriam Gwynne, a contributor for The Huffington Post, writes: "I sat at the back of the hall at my daughter's school end-of-year assembly smiling as the choir sang, the oldest class performed and finally the awards were given out. As a parent, it is such a proud moment to hear your child's name called out and their achievements recognized. Awards for academic achievement, endeavor, sports, star of the year and citizenship had me cheering, smiling and clapping. Then one final reward made me so angry I actually wanted to get up and walk out: 100 percent attendance!"
