Truancy is one of the most alarming social problems school social workers and educators face daily. Because of the complex conditions that contribute to truancy, the etiology and development of the problem are unclear. The authors use a literature review to discuss the etiology of truancy and use an ecosystems perspective as a conceptual framework to analyze potential causes of truancy and to discuss relevant interventions for practitioners.
