Don't Fence Me In: Essays on the Rational Truant

Edited by Michael Conolly and Dennis O'Keeffe

University of Buckingham Press


218 pages



The essays collected in this volume question the received wisdom that truants from schooling are acting irrationally and should be coerced into attending school from a variety of perspectives. Topics include the political economy of truancy, cause and reason in the study of truancy, fighting truancy with consumer choice in education, teaching style and truancy, political attitudes towards truancy, and truancy as a function of ethnic group and linguistic proficiency.
