Frydenlund, Jonas Højgaard – Scandinavian Journal of Educational Research, 2023
In this ethnographic study, I present a single school's practice of registering and analysing absence from school. I show that teachers use various "dirty," interpretational contexts for understanding absence and make it classifiable in "clean" attendance categories -- a move that decontextualises the meaning of absence. When…

Kupchik, Aaron; Highberger, James; Bear, George – Psychology in the Schools, 2022

J. Jacob Kirksey; Joseph Elefante – Journal of Education for Students Placed at Risk, 2024

Morris, Wade H. – History of Education Quarterly, 2022
Andrew Monroe [pseud.] (b. 1894) was a Colorado street kid whose acts of truancy and theft landed him before the state's early juvenile courts, and his youth was marked by attempts at escape from reform school. His childhood and youth provide insights into the mechanics of how systems of juvenile corrections operated in the early twentieth…

Lenhoff, Sarah Winchell; Singer, Jeremy – Peabody Journal of Education, 2022
Many problems that we conceptualize as "educational" have multiple causes that cut across students' ecosystems. Yet, most education reforms are targeted narrowly at schools, educators, and students. Supporting educators and community leaders in conceptualizing educational problems from an ecological perspective and designing policies in…

Chronic absenteeism from school is a serious and common problem. Students miss school for many reasons, and the combination of factors that lead to absences are unique for each student.

Pyne, Jaymes; Grodsky, Eric; Vaade, Elizabeth; McCready, Bo; Camburn, Eric; Bradley, Dominique – Educational Policy, 2023
State and national school accountability policies situate preventing chronic absenteeism on par with meeting state standardized test benchmarks. We question relying on school attendance as both a component of accountability policies and a means of enhancing equity in schools. Our research suggests out-of-school factors unrelated to missed…

Finding effective ways to improve school attendance is more important than ever given the dramatic increases in chronic absence nationwide and in California.

Markus Klein; Edward M. Sosu – Sociology of Education, 2024
Studies consistently show the detrimental effect of school absences on pupils' achievement. However, due to an accumulation of multiple risks, school absenteeism may be more harmful to achievement among pupils from lower socioeconomic status (SES). Using a sample of upper-secondary students from the Scottish Longitudinal Study (n = 3,135), we…
