What we know - and don't - about truancy and why it matters.

Hosted by Hon. Richard Ginkowski, Pleasant Prairie, WI

Judges may deal with school truancy in juvenile, family and criminal cases. How serious is chronic absenteeism? Does punishing truant students work? Can judges adapt treatment court methods in truancy cases? University of Wisconsin Professor Eric Grodsky, who studies truancy, joins host Richard Ginkowski to discuss this important topic -- and some of the jaw dropping impacts of truancy.
