Hangout with Hedy Chang

September is Attendance Awareness Month, and to kick it off EWA Public Editor Emily Richmond chatted with Hedy Chang, director of the national initiative AttendanceWorks. They discussed a new report from the University of Chicago Consortium on Chicago School Research examining how absenteeism impacts learning outcomes for preschoolers, as well as some findings on the reasons for their absences.
