    It is a better understanding of why these children are not attending school and working to solve their individual problems, that is required.

    This problem is being addressed by a small group of teachers in Devonport who have instigated a program to find these reasons and to encourage the kids involved to continue with their schooling as best they can. I believe there is some activity taking place in Burnie in this area also.

    Programs are being tried to solve the truancy problem with many caring professionals taking part – this includes, teachers, police and church groups. Your support is needed, not your criticism.
