Truancy figures a disgrace - Laws

Commenting on today’s Government figures which show that children skipped almost 4m days of school last year, Liberal Democrat Shadow Schools Secretary, David Laws said:

“These figures are a disgrace. The Government’s truancy strategies are not working."

“Ministers have poured hundreds of millions of pounds into reducing truancy over recent years, but this money seems to have been completely wasted.

“It is worrying that there has been a rise in the number of children missing school because of unauthorised holidays. Parents should not be removing their children from school without permission from their teachers.
