With All Respect: Reviewing disaffection strategies

Anne Wilkin, Kay Kinder

01 February 1998

This is the fourth and final report in a series to accompany the NFER project 'School Attendance, Truancy and Exclusions', offering updates and final evaluative comment on school-based strategies to address attendance and behaviour problems. It also presents perspectives from a sample of parents whose children were involved in these strategies, as well as detailed case-studies of disaffected pupils.

This short paper provides ideas and insights which might help those LEA and school staff who are planning and evaluating initiatives to address the important issue of pupil disaffection.
