What Do Ohio Students Need To Get To School Every Day?
Students who miss a lot school fall behind. It’s a national problem.
Each year, 5 to 7.5 million U.S. children are considered chronically absent. In Ohio, 15.8 percent of students miss 10 percent of the school year—about 18 days. That adds up to nearly four weeks of school missed.
The consequences are clear: lower test scores and higher dropout rates in the long run.
