    This description of Stefan Schwall's work was prepared when Stefan Schwall was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2011.
    Introduction
    Stefan Schwall has developed and piloted a new approach to reduce high school absenteeism: Stefan supports schools in tracking absences, trains teachers to deal with difficult students, created a facility for chronically absent kids, and has transformed cooperation with the youth welfare system. He is cutting costs for youth welfare offices and ensuring that chronically absent kids are placed in programs that are appropriate for their needs.
