Fewer than 1 in 2 kids regularly attending school!

The latest attendance data is a shocker. Some lowlights:

  • Regular attendance rate in Term 1 was a record low of 46%
  • That is 380,000 not regularly in school compared to 160,000 in 2019
  • The regular attendance rate is 33% and Pacific 30%
  • Around 25% of and Pacific are not even attending 70% of the time
  • Only 25% of Decile 1 are attending regularly and one in three are not attending even 70% of the time

We live in a country where fewer than 1 in 2 regularly attend school. Incredible.
