The Attendance Nightmare.
Phillips, John A., Jr.
This paper describes a program intended to increase student attendance in a Savannah, Georgia, inner city high school. The author maintains that shifting the accountability for attendance to the students through peer pressure was perhaps the most significant reason for gains in attendance. He believes that a successful attendance increase program depends on developing positive student self-concepts and encouraging cooperation among faculty, staff, and student body. (Author/DS)
