The Reason behind Reduced Absenteeism

Over the years, one of the irksome issue for school authorities has been an increase in the rate of Absenteeism. Quite often than not, students are absent without a bona fide excuse. Absenteeism has been a topic of concern as it has often been linked to serious problems such as violence, substance abuse, gang involvement and criminal activity such as burglary and vandalism. Left unaddressed, absenteeism can have significant negative effects on students, the school and on society. Absenteeism can lead to depression and also result in poor quality of education as a result of time lost while being away from school. It could also lead to moral degradation that leads to drug abuse, early pregnancies, and unruly behavior. And quite often, A PARENT IS UNKNOWN TO THE FACT THAT HIS/HER WARD IS ABSENT.

In this fast-moving world, where both parents of a student are usually employed, it becomes difficult for the parents to keep a check on the whereabouts of his/her child and this results to an increase in absenteeism. There can be many reasons behind absenteeism of a student but the worst one is “bunking”. “Bunking” has been one of the main cause in more than 60% of cases of absenteeism. It can because of reasons varying from peer pressure to phobic adolescence or maybe from lack of interest to private coaching, there had been many reasons behind the induction of “Bunking” into the long list of the reasons behind being “absent”. Of all the reasons, the one reason that shines the brightest is “lack of engagement of the parent as long as the attendance of their child is concerned”.

But how to fray against “bunking” which results in such rates of absenteeism? The answer to this problems is, VAWSUM. VAWSUM is a parent-teacher engagement app and VAWSUM helps a parent to keep full track of their ward’s attendance. Using VAWSUM, when a teacher takes attendance, the parent of the child gets notified there and then. As a result, there is very little provision for the child, not to be present (without a valid reason), as he/she knows that his/her parents would be notified. This results in an increase in attendance. When a child is present in the school, his/her class involvement increases and this enhances the growth of the child. This method of taking attendance promotes presenteeism as part of the discourse of learners, for each student.

Many schools across India are strengthening their class attendance policies by using VAWSUM. VAWSUM has been the cornerstone of the success for most schools. The attendance module of the app has revolutionized the ways of taking attendance and has indeed helped in the rise in the rate of presenteeism. While many schools have already started using VAWSUM, many have already requested for a demo use. If you too want the same, then contact us at www.vawsum.com
