Analysis: 1 in 5 High Schoolers Is Chronically Absent. Here's What Data Shows About Those Kids


According to a recent report from the Department of Education, one out every eight students in America missed three weeks or more of school during the 2013–14 academic year. (The number among older students is even more dramatic, as 20 percent of all high school students missed three weeks or more.)

The results indicate that chronic absenteeism — which is defined as missing 10 percent of a school year for any reason — affects students across the entire country, among all races, and has an equal impact on boys and girls.
