CHAPTER ONE

1.0 Introduction This study was undertaken to investigate the relationship between student absenteeism and performance in Kenya. This chapter presented the background to the study, statement of the problem, objectives of study, scope of the study, research questions and significance of the study. 1.1 Background of the study Student absenteeism affects more than student academic performance. Because public school funding formulas are based on attendance numbers, increased absenteeism directly translates to fewer federal and state dollars for school programs. When sick students need to be cared for at home, parents are absent from the workplace which in turn, negatively affects the economy (Master, Hess, & Dickson. 1997). Student and staff absenteeism also results in increased school administrative costs (e.g., student tracking, hiring substitutes) and greater health-care expenditures.
