Teachers Absent From Class Way Too Much, Study Says

Teachers in the USA’s largest school districts missed an average of 11 days, according to a report on teacher attendance released Tuesday.

The study from the National Council on Teacher Quality looked at attendance for more than 234,000 teachers in 40 districts during the 2012-13 year and found that 16% of all teachers were classified as chronically absent because they missed 18 days or more.
