A new report by Attendance Works, suggests that children who miss even a few days of school can suffer big setbacks compared to their peers.

The report shows that fourth graders who missed just three days of school the month prior to testing scored on average 11 points lower in math and reading than those who didn't miss a day.

Eighth graders fell behind by 13 points after three absences.

The report said that the drop was across all social-economic groups.
