170 Los Angeles students to pay a price for absence

Tougher attendance rules will force more than one-quarter of eligible Carson High graduates to sit out commencement ceremonies.

More than one-fourth of Carson High's graduates will miss commencement ceremonies because they missed too much school.

About 170 of 665 eligible graduates won't don a cap and gown because they failed to show up for more than 60 hours of instruction this year or were late to class more than 15 times.

This from the Los Angeles Times.
