The Alliance’s Jessica Cardichon discusses chronic absenteeism’s effect on grad rates

Jessica Cardichon, senior director for policy and advocacy for Alliance for Excellent Education, a Washington D.C.-based education policy advocacy organization, said chronic absenteeism is one of the main causes of lower graduation rates across the country. "It's a perpetual cycle — the more time you spend outside the classroom, the further you fall behind and that can put you off track to graduation," Cardichon said. Cardichon also said that the average daily attendance that schools normally follow and report don't show the problem of chronic attendance.
