Truancy Map

(England only data, sorry...)

Interesting... I see Essex is in the middle for persistent truancy, for all its percieved as being a bit rough in parts.(and a bit posh in other parts, same as anywhere I guess!)

Is it that counties (or LAs) are so large that, as you say EB, good and bad schools even out over the area?

Of course, I thought a "truancy map" was going to show me where truants hang out during school time, not which schools they are truant from. :)

I am a bit dim and finding it really hard to compare areas with the way they've listed them.

As far as I can make out Lancashire had 2744 persistant absentees which is 3.6% and  490 penalty notices were issued making that 62.4 % of 1000 truants. 

I'm not sure how that compares nationally without scrolling up and down and gettin confused,  because they seem be listed by area and not figures?
