Truancy has been linked to serious delinquent activity in youth and to significant negative behavior and characteristics in adults. This problem needs serious handling. Because, this problem will be bad, both for the students themselves and to the school environment. What is Truancy ?
  3. 3. How they do the truancy ?
  4. 4. The students usually went from home in the morning with a uniform, but they were not in school.
  5. 5. Many reasons that make they skipped from school. Truancy fall into three broad categories, there are : Why They Skipped (Truant) From School?

  7. 7. 2. School Factors These includes: school climate such as school size and attitudes of teachers or other students, and administrators—and inflexibility in meeting the diverse cultural and learning styles of the students. Schools often have inconsistent procedures for dealing with chronic absenteeism and may not have meaningful consequences available for truant youth.

Students who are chronically truant are also at-risk for other behaviors, such as alcohol and drug abuse, teenage pregnancy, and delinquency. • Negative effect upon other students. Students who are chronically truant require extra time from teachers; teachers have less time to spend with the regularly-attending students in the classroom when they must create make-up work for truants.
  10. 10. THE ACTIONS THAT CAN DO TO REDUCE TRUANCY There are many actions for reduce truant habit in students such as:
  11. 11. 0 Discuss any attendance problems. And then Giving an advise for the child. 0 Teachers are always creative, innovate to create a cheerful atmosphere of the class is fun and lively. 0 Giving responsibility both in class and in school, which can raise self-esteem and the trust. For example, by following the organization of the school as a caretaker classes, etc. 0 Engaging all students in the learning process. So the lesson presented is not boring, such as hold a quizzes, games, conduct research, etc. 0 And many many more .
  12. 12. For example : A high school in California, USA, Anaheim Union High School District, to implement a new way to overcome the problem of students who like to truant habits. Instead of punishment, students who skipped their school fact that even given the 'gift' of a GPS mobile. Certainly is not a gift in the truest sense. The device is basically a punishment, but is considered more educated than the physical or mental punishment directly. Any student caught truant at least four times a year will be equipped with that device. They must report automatically with the menu on the device five times a day, which is now going to school, when they arrive at school, at lunch, at school, and every day at 20.00.
  13. 13. Conclusion Truancy in fact do by students who can not be responsible for themselves and not be able to respect themselves. However, they can not be separated from the factors that cause students to truant from school, such as family factors, school factors, factors from students themselves. And all actions of truant habits be result : 0 Dropping out of school. 0 Students are also at-risk for other behaviors, such as alcohol and drug abuse, teenage pregnancy, and delinquency. 0 Negative effect upon other students. . For problem solving it required special attention both from their family and their school.
  14. 14. Sugesstion We recommend that students who are truant give punishments or advice. But, hard punishments are not always able to problem solving. But it would be nice if the approach taken by the student like a friend. If that way does not work, then steps must be taken is to contact parents of students to be solve the problem well. The support to repent from family, friends or friendship is the most important.
