WHUR: The Daily Drum, DC Public School Truancy

March 12, 2015

Listen to Judith Sandalow and Daniel Okonkwo, executive director of DC Lawyers For Youth (DCLY), discuss the recent report released by Children’s Law Center and DCLY on Monday.

Judith, Daniel, and host Harold Fisher discussed why kids miss scool, how new anti-truancy programs have helped, what interventions have worked, and how putting kids in court does not work to drive down District truancy rates.
