A casework study of truanting
MetadataShow full item record
The problem to be investigated in this research is that of truancy, its possible causes and the treatment methods which have been employed in casework with the parents. The hypothesis is that children who truant are, in part, acting out their parents' conflicts around the learning process. The research question posed is: How did the caseworker treat the parent or parentc presumably unaware of a relationship between parents' attitudes toward learning and their children's attitudes and behavior toward school?
