Power of showing up important in education

  There is a lot of research indicating that almost all students who attend school on a regular basis attain at least adequate levels of academic success.

When Woody Allen said “Eighty percent of success is showing up,” he wasn’t far off. 

Obviously, we want more than 80 percent of success, but the quote and the research taken together begs the question of why students miss school and what can we, as a school system and a community of thoughtful adults, do about it.
