Pt Jawaharlal Nehru rightly said “Children are like buds in a garden and should be carefully and lovingly nurtured, as they are the future of the nation and the citizens of tomorrow”. It is imperative to provide them a healthy environment to cultivate myriad range of skills. However, there are gamut of reasons that can impact children’s development, their ability to learn, including bullying, SEL (social emotional intelligence), leadership, and many more.
Out of all these reasons, nothing can be worse than not attending school. Think about it: if your child is absent, he will certainly fall behind the rest, resulting in poor performance in exams. A study was conducted and revealed astonishing proclamations:
- Children who are frequently absent in preschool, kindergarten, and first grade are much less likely to read at grade level by the third grade.
- Frequently absenteeism in a single year between 8th and 12th grades can create a seven-fold upsurge in the possibility of dropping out.
- Students who cannot read at third grade are four times more likely to drop out of high school as compared to proficient readers.
These declarations can blow every parent’s mind! Absenteeism not only impacts academic results, but it has been proven to affect life after school/ college as well. Therefore, it is essential to take certain steps to encourage students to attend school/ college regularly.
Firstly, parents should ensure their child is attending lectures. If parents are unaware of it, then nothing can be done!
Modern technology has brought a revolution in the education setups. Now, knowing your children’s academic and general behavior in school is just a matter of few clicks. Thanks to Microsoft student information system. This automate system is a rescue for parents! It connects all stakeholders, such as parents, teachers, students and management at a central location. Parents can log in to check the attendance and performance of their children. If your child is absent or scoring less marks, you can talk to him to know the root cause and then find out a way to work on it. Campus information system allows parents to access it from anywhere and anytime.
Also awareness is Significant! During school/ college events, teachers should explain students how important it is to attend school regularly. They should distribute prizes to students having 100% attendance to encourage them and others as well.
Parents should give time to children to ensure they are on the right path, and attending school/ college regularly. Microsoft student information system is a great help for working parents to keep a check on the academic and general behavior of their children.
