Absenteeism: A Review of the Literature and School Psychology's Role
Goldstein, Jeffrey S.; Little, Steven G.; Akin-Little, K. Angeleque
California School Psychologist, v8 p127-139 2003
A major problem faced by schools across the country is student absenteeism. Although the problem is pervasive in American schools, the attention focused on this issue has been inadequate. Poor student attendance has far reaching effects on the individual, the school, and society in general. The intent of this paper is to document the problem, summarize existing research on mediating factors, provide a summary of interventions for improving student attendance rates in schools, and to offer specific suggestions for school psychologists. In addition, specific attention is given to suggestions for future research to help expand the current understanding of the causes and remediation of poor student attendance. (Contains 2 tables.)
