Excerpt from Factors Controlling Attendance in Rural Schools

This chapter reports the results of the study and summarizes the factors influencing attendance in the rural schools included in the analysis. The evidence on which the statements are based will be found in the chapters that follow.

An examination of more than fifty possible factors Shows that many of the facts analyzed have no significant relation to attend ance in the five counties included in this study. But whether children live near the school, whether they are ahead or behind the proper grades for their ages, whether they are at the head or foot of their classes, whether they have the better paid and higher-rated teachers, and whether they live in a community interested in education, are important factors in the school attendance of country children.

Sex of the children makes very little difference. Boys and girls attend equally well, except between the ages of 12 and 14 years when girls go to school more days than boys.
