Attorney General Harris’ second annual report, In School + On Track 2014, will provide new research on how students of color and students from low income families are missing a disproportionate amount of school each year and will outline recommendations to reduce state truancy rates. These recommendations were put into action in the Every Kid Counts legislative package (http://bit.ly/1q9oKDT) sponsored by Attorney General Harris that passed the state legislature and currently awaits Governor Jerry Brown’s signature.
