Abstract

Although education is essentially a state function, the very nature of school attendance makes it primarily a local administrative problem. Therefore, the purpose of this study is three-fold: 1. To explore certain problems of pupil attendance on the elementary school level. 2. To identify and study problems which directly affect school attendance adversely. 3. To discover possible administrative policies which might be used in the improvement of school attendance.
