Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0415205085, Paperback)

Since the late 1980s, few issues have attracted as much attention or public interest as truancy. Evidence is mounting that most failing schools are placed in this category because of significant problems relating to behaviour and attendance rather than for other educational reasons. This book is an up-to-date comprehensive pack on the subject of truancy. It synthesizes and brings together in a practical way recent knowledge and ideas on truants and truancy. The text should be useful for both primary and secondary school-teachers - since recent research shows that 25 per cent of all truants begin their histories of truanting whilst at primary school. It should also be of interest to education social workers and education welfare officers, educational psychologists, social workers, child care agencies, sociology and psychology students.
