For their co-op job, six college students were placed in high schools as truancy prevention facilitators. Data collected on 600 high school truants showed that the facilitators were effective change agents in influencing attendance behavior, establishing informal positive relations with truants, and effecting cooperation among truants, their families, and schools.
