1. McNulty, Paige E. Combating School Truancy: Current Practices and Recommendations for Improvement.

Degree: EdD Doctor of Education, Educational Leadership, 2016, National-Louis University

School truancy poses a significant problem for the U.S. educational system and our society. Truant students suffer negative effects not only in their education, but also in their potential future financial earnings and even their life expectancy. Despite the recognition of the problem in the United States, efforts to curb truancy have proben largely ineffective. As exploratory case study, which consisted of semi-structured interviews with five participants - four principals and one district superintendent - examined the perceptions of current truancy intervention programs and ways to improve them. The most common practice for combating truancy involved the employment of truancy officers. However, participants indicated that the most effective ways to curb truancy were by taking more proactive approaches within students' homes and by forming partnerships with different agencies, such as the police and court system. Advisors/Committee Members: Vicki Gunther, Norm Weston, Linell Monson.

2. Clark, Jennifer Grace. Examining Truancy Board Effectiveness in Countering Student Absenteeism in Grades K-5 in Three Title I Schools in Northeast Tennessee.

Degree: EdD (Doctor of Education), Educational Leadership, 2008, East Tennessee State University

The purpose of this study was to determine the association between the use of a truancy board and the number of student absences in K - 5 students in 3 Title I schools in northeast Tennessee. Absences were compiled on students who attended the same elementary school over the 4 years of the study, 2003-2004 through 2006-2007. Two years of absences were combined for the 2 years prior to the implementation of the truancy board, 2003-2004 and 2004-2005. The data were then compared to the combined number of days for the 2 years following implementation, 2005-2006 and 2006-2007. A paired samples t test, an ANOVA, and an independent samples t test were used to analyze data regarding the affect of the truancy board on student attendance in K - 5 students. The results of the study indicated there was no significant difference in the number of days absent for the students in the 3 schools in the 2 years following the implementation of a truancy board as compared to the 2 years prior to implementation. The results of the study also indicated there was no significance with student gender. Male and female students were absent at about the same rate after the truancy board implementation as before. Socioeconomic status for each student was also examined. Students who qualified for the free and reduced lunch program were considered to have a low socioeconomic status and students not qualifying were considered to have a high socioeconomic status. Both groups of students were absent about the same number of days after the truancy board implementation as before.

3. Andersson, Johanna. Too Cool for School : En kvantitativ studie om studierelaterad problematik bland gymnasieelever och deras inställning inför studierna - ur ett helhetsperspektiv.

Degree: Centre for Social Work - CESAR, 2019, Uppsala University

Studiens syfte är att undersöka gymnasieelever i årskurs tre och deras motivation till att prioritera sina studier och prestera väl i skolan, samt undersöka vad som kan bidra till problematiken kring att vissa gymnasieelever inte är motiverade till att prioritera sina studier och prestera väl i skolan. Ett visst fokus riktas mot gymnasieelevers alkohol- och narkotikaanvändning, med syftet att undersöka huruvida detta samspelar med bristande studiemotivation. Studien utgår från tidigare forskning på området, vilken fastslår att det existerar ett samband mellan studierelaterad problematik och alkohol- och narkotikaanvändning, samt att andra omkringliggande aspekter i elevers liv kan vara avgörande för studierelaterad problematik och ungas användning av alkohol och narkotika. Tidigare forskning har, tillsammans med vårt teoretiska ramverk hjälpt oss att analysera och diskutera studiens resultat. Det teoretiska ramverket består av ett helhetsperspektiv och andra teoretiska begrepp som KASAM (känsla av sammanhang), gruppkultur, subkultur och avvikande beteende. För att uppnå studiens syfte har vi antagit en kvantitativ ansats och inhämtat vårt empiriska material via en webbaserad enkätundersökning. Vår data har genomgått sambandsanalyser med hjälp av Chi2-test, t-test och variansanalys (ANOVA). Studiens resultat visar att de flesta gymnasieelever sällan är motiverade att gå till skolan på morgonen och spenderar under 30 minuter om dagen på studier utöver skoltid. Samtidigt är det övervägande många som anser att det är av vikt att prestera väl i skolan. De flesta elever skolkar minst någon gång per termin och då på grund av en allmän skoltrötthet. Resultatet visar även att det finns ett samband mellan elevers omgivning och deras studiesituation. Vänners vanor kring skolk återspeglas exempelvis i hur ofta eleven själv skolkar. Detsamma gäller för elevens användning av alkohol och narkotika. Avslutningsvis visar också studiens resultat att det finns samband mellan alkoholanvändning (i vissa fall), cannabisanvändning (i de flesta fallen) och studierelaterad problematik.
