ONE DOOR AT A TIME
FINDING AMERICA’S MISSING STUDENTS
One Door at a Time: Finding America’s Missing Students is a documentary about chronic absenteeism, its impact, and the story of one company that is working to combat it.
It’s an unsettling reminder that 7.5 million students are not showing up to school and too often the causes are unknown. The film follows the staff at Concentric Educational Solutions as they knock on doors across the country searching for students missing from the school system. The film stresses the difference home visits can and do make in not only re-engaging chronically absent students but in improving academic achievement.
"I look forward to seeing the entire documentary. This is a powerful subject that needs a great deal of attention and support. It is becoming increasingly more difficult for schools to keep up with this growing need support."
