Episode 12: What Really Matters in Reducing Absences During COVID and Beyond
In Episode 12 of TASA’s Inspiring Leaders Podcast, we explore how schools can tap into their relationships with families to dispel myths about attendance and decrease chronic absences by 10 to 15%. We talk to Dr. Todd Rogers, a behavioral scientist and professor of public policy at Harvard who co-founded EveryDay Labs, about what his research has shown about scalable interventions. As is true with most parts of education policy, a simple compliance focus may leave out the information educators need to make a real difference in student access to support.
