Chicago Tribune Watchdog: School Truancy

Large, urban public school districts are faced with a host of problems, including budget cutbacks and student truancy and absenteeism. The Chicago Tribune launched this investigative report into the problems of truancy and absenteeism in the Chicago Public School system and it is well worth a closer look. On the site, visitors can read through four primary areas: The Crisis, Solutions, Lives in the Balance, and Updates. The first area gives visitors access to articles, podcasts, and interviews profiling social workers, education experts, and others working to solve this most pernicious problem. Moving on, the Solutions area looks at how other cities in Illinois are hoping to address this problem via dedicated case workers and other social service professionals. Finally, the Updates area provides links to articles detailing up-to-the-minute coverage of how the problem is being addressed by politicians, community groups, and educational experts.
