Project Probe: A Student Conducted Study of Truancy. A Project Report.
Robinson, John V.; And Others
A 50-item questionnaire was developed with the assistance of a group of five current truant, five former truant, and five nontruant junior high students for distribution to students and teachers at one junior high within the Iowa City Community School District. Survey results indicated that most student and teacher respondents believed that truancy was highly related to peer influence and that improved relations and communications between students, teachers, and parents would result in improved attendance. Student and teacher respondents were generally in agreement on causes of truancy but differed somewhat on solutions, with teachers favoring increased structure and students favoring a more open academic environment.
