Report: Poor, Black Students And Disabled Students Most Likely To Miss School In California.
The Latin Post (9/7) highlights the findings of a report by Attendance Works, a non-profit that advocates against chronic absenteeism in schools. The report found that in California chronic absenteeism was most common among poor black students and disabled students. The report also found that the chronic absences and truancies increased dropout rates and achievement gaps.
