The latest report entitled “In School-On Track” was released only. “One of the main findings of the report is that California still faces an attendance crisis in elementary school.

Habig explains it’s a lose-lose situation when a child is not in school. Children miss out on needed skills to advance in their education and schools lose needed funding.
