  A panel of Educators discussed ways of addressing the problem of school absenteeism. What is the link between elementary school attendance and high school graduation rates, and what is being done to keep kids in school, to combat chronic absenteeism, and to make parents, and those in the school system, more accountable for having school age children make it to class.

Host Jennifer Rooks was joined by 

Susan Lieberman, Project Director, Count ME In, at Spurwink’s Center for Positive Youth Development 

Kyle Rhodes, Principal of Windham Primary School, RSU 14 

Leslie Mulhearn, Director of Crisis Services, Sweetser
