The Self-Concept and Persistent School Absenteeism.
Reid, K.
British Journal of Educational Psychology, v52 Pt2 p179-87 Jun 1982
Indicates that persistent absentees at an inner-city school in South Wales had significantly lower self-concept and self-esteem, more deprived socioeconomic backgrounds, lower intelligence levels, and more educational problems than two control groups. Suggests that remedial measures for absenteeism should focus on raising self-concepts and changing attitudes toward school. (Author/MJL)
