City Voices November 2005: Class cutting and truancy

Print More

The more a student misses class, the more likely he is to fail the course. The more courses she fails, the less likely she is to graduate on time. In spring 2004, half of all freshmen missed more than two weeks of class in major subject. Guests: Victor Harbison, principal intern, Jones College Prep; Bill Gerstein, principal of the School of Entrepreneurship, a small school at South Shore High.
