"Getting Teenagers Back to School: Rethinking New York State's Response to Chronic Absence"

RELEASE: October 25, 2010 -- The New York State Office of Children and Family Services (OCFS) today released “Getting Teenagers Back to School: Rethinking New York State’s Response to Chronic Absence,” a policy brief researched and written for the agency by the Vera Institute of Justice in partnership with Casey Family Programs.   

"What their brief does not begin to explore is false filings of educational neglect charges, and why there are no investigations into this aspect. " ~ Rhonda Mangus, North Tonawanda , NY
