The Center for American Progress explains:
“Hawaii’s distribution (of teacher absenteeism) is somewhat bi-modal. One cluster of schools has very low rates; the rest have values concentrated at the high end of the range. It would be reasonable to hypothesize that absence cultures in Hawaii’s schools exert a strong influence on individual teachers’ behavior. In some schools this means it’s rare for any teacher to be absent more than 10 days; in others, the majority of teachers miss school frequently.”
