Over 300,000 kids have been reported not attending school "regularly" (before COVID).... Why?

Ryan Bridge 11/02/2021

Pre COVID-19 in Term 2 of 2019 only 58 per cent of children were regularly attending school – meaning more than 90 per cent of the time. (The figure increased to 64 per cent in term 2 of 2020.)

This means more than 300,000 children were regularly not attending school during this period.

Ryan Bridge asks... Why? Listen to some of the callers he had following this question from a fromer board of trustees member & a former truancy officer.
