Description

Ideally a student is put in school to come to class everyday which will give them the necessary skills to pass their grade level and to be successful, however, In the United States, 14% of all public-school students are chronically absent from school, missing 15 or more days per year, which can result in dropout rates increasing. According to the US Department of Education, High school students were absent the most—almost 20 percent—followed by middle school (12 percent) and elementary school students (10 percent). This shows that teenagers and adults are not the main groups that are affected, it is a problem for all ages. If a student doesn’t come to class they will end up falling behind and not being able to catch up which will then potentially make them fail. Later, we find out that it can lead to other consequences which can become fatal. The importance that attendance has on a student’s school career and talks about the disadvantages that they can have later on if being absent becomes a problem. Other situations that correlate with chronic absenteeism can be hazardous such as behaviors involving substance abuse, violence, suicide attempt, risky sexual behavior, pregnancy, delinquency-related behaviors, injury, and illness. The purpose of this study is to find out what impact does absenteeism have on the GPA scores of sophomore students in high school in order to determine if there is any correlation between the two. With the findings there should be people of higher power in the school system who can use this knowledge to issue stricter policies and or create a plan to help students who are missing for the majority of their school career. In this proposed study a Quantitative research method will be used. The goal is to find out what the impact of Absenteeism has on sophomore student’s GPA scores and giving the answer on not only what kind of impact it has on GPA scores but also if it is a negative or positive effect. Social workers can pinpoint the exact problem that is causing a student to slip from there GPA scores. If attendance is a problem they can see that it is the main reason why they are slipping. Absenteeism is a global impact that occurs in every working position. The causes can be different but the effects are mainly the same.
