Dr Des Hewitt from the Centre for Professional Education shares his thoughts on the recent reports, suggesting that in the coming years there will be an increase of the number of places needed for children in schools...
Dr Adam Boddison answers the question, is the increase of parental prosecutions for school truancy something that as a society we should be worried about?
Dr Adam Boddison is Director of the University of Warwick’s Centre for Professional Education (CPE) responding to news that school truancies have led to a rise in prosecution of parents, he said,
"The increase of parental prosecutions for school truancy seems to be a worrying trend, particularly given the fact that a significant number of the children truanting are not ducking out of classes in the traditional sense of truancy, but are actually missing school to attend family holidays. Is this something that as a society we should be worried about?"
