No shows

Students just aren't showing up in many school districts, writes Steven Hayward on Powerline. Chronic absenteeism -- missing 10 percent or more of school days -- is way up.

"We know that the COVID school shutdowns were a disaster for children and young adults, and that low-income and minorities were hardest hit, as always," he writes. Chronic absenteeism doubled in San Francisco's public schools: 64 percent of blacks and 47 percent of Hispanics were chronic truants in 2021-22.
