Yesterday it was reported that on average a parent is jailed every two weeks because of their child's truancy. Further information on this area is available from this BBC story, which looks at the impact that such measures can have on families.

If you have an interest in truancy, then you should really pay a visit to the DSCF's School Attendance website; the site contains guidance for staff, information on the national strategy, links to research in this area, and other resources. You may also want to look at Improving School Attendance in England, a National Audit Office report from 2005.
