Education opens and closes doors throughout life. It is related to a student's earning potential. Regular attendance during the K-12 years supports a mindset of life-long learning and a successful transition to post-secondary education. Earning potential determines many things throughout life including housing, employment and overall quality of life. Every day a student attends school is a direct investment in their future. 

Habits such as regular school attendance become lifelong habits that inform workforce readiness in later years. Regular school attendance is critical for our children's future economic well-being. Statistics from the Bureau of Labor Statistics suggest a strong correlation between educational attainment, employment, and weekly earnings.
