Truancy rates hit a record low
There is less truancy amongst British school-children now than at any time previously recorded. The rate is now at 3.6% in Secondary Schools, down from 7.87% in 2006/07.
The figures are not quite so good in primary schools, however. Infact there is a small increase - 5.26% from 5.18% - over the same period.
Whilst the Government see the figures as a sign that their policies are working, the Opposition Parties claim that they are failing primary school children.
