Opinion: Perfect attendance 
matters in the workplace

 

Buckeye Farm News

Thank you for your Feb. 26 article “Governor calls for education overhaul.” I was involved in all phases of my grown children’s education, tutored elementary and high school students and recruited, hired and trained engineers and have one recommendation for Gov. Strickland.  It is to mandate that all Ohio schools recognize perfect attendance as often and with the same importance as honor roll.  I have experienced former “A” students that seemed unable to get to work every day and on time and “C” students that rarely missed a day or arrived late.  It is difficult to operate a business with absent and/or late employees.
