Cutting class begins in middle school, survey finds - Courtesy of ASCD Smartbrief

Here is a great article that addresses a huge issue.  We need to think about why students are so dis-engaged, they are willing to risk the consequences of cutting class!  
Engagement is a must!
Well worth the read.

Cutting class often begins in middle school and becomes a regular habit by ninth grade, according to a study by the Get Schooled Foundation, which reported that approximately 7 million students miss a month or more of class annually. Researchers, who surveyed more than 500 students in 25 U.S. cities about their views on missing school, found truancy to be present across all student demographics, with "habitual skippers" most at risk of dropping out of high school.
