Research: Effective communication can reduce absenteeism 10 percent
from THE Journal
Telling parents that absences matter and offering suggestions for eliminating them reduces absenteeism by as much as 10 percent, according to a new study from researchers at Harvard and Berkeley. Researchers used three different communications strategies with parents of more than 28,000 high-risk students at the Philadelphia School District. Parents tend to do a poor job of tracking their children's attendance and understanding how it compares to the average, according to the researchers.
