Gerard Robinson and Benjamin Scafidi do an excellent job discussing Absenteeism and how it can be handled in this article.

They discuss some of the statistics that I mentioned in my previous post: Education Epidemic – Absenteeism.   They discuss the US Department of Educations claim that 13% of American students missed more than 15 days of school during the 2013-14 school year.  Their solution is to make parents accountable and to “stop giving them a pass”

Check it out and let us work to solve this epidemic so that our kids can learn.  They are our future!

Looking for additional resources on why chronic research matters, check out this site by the Department of Education.
