What I'm saying is that using attendance as the metric to determine funding sucks and we should find a better way.

Success metrics are how you determine whether a change has worked, and they are how you determine where to put more resources. So if your success metric is attendance, you're going to maximize attendance, not quality of education.

I don't think they are using attendance is a success metric. They are using it as a cost metric.

The success of the US education system is measured by the highly squishy terms of "perception."
