Understanding the impact of chronic absenteeism for students
from By: Brian Stack (commentary)
Chronic absenteeism data for schools is about to become much more public. By the end of this month, the Every Student Succeeds Act has required that schools list chronic absenteeism rates on their state report cards. Many schools across the country have already started to do this, and the work started with states defining at what point absences would be considered a chronic issue. By whichever standard you use, there is no debate that chronic absenteeism among students is a growing problem that plagues all schools.
