Perfect attendance a point of pride for most survey-takers

Of all the employees who took last week’s eNews survey, only one said he/she did not maintain a perfect attendance record for at least one school year as a child.

And while nobody had a perfect record from start to finish, almost 30 percent said they had maintained a perfect attendance record for an incredible 10 or 11 of their 12 years in grade school.

Another 30 percent said they could claim one or two years, while the remainder fell in between those two extremes.

Of those who had come to school every day, only 40 percent said it was due to parental pressure. The rest said their motivation came from within, because as one survey-taker succinctly put it, “School was a lot easier than staying home to work.”
