Ask to see a record of teacher attendance (sometimes called a timesheet or time book) for the primary classes 1 to 6. Record whether the teacher attendance record is available. Is the teacher attendance record available?
Question post text
If the teacher attendance record is available then please record the date and the number of absent teachers from the attendance record. Start with the most recent working day (excluding today) and work backwards. If the attendance record is not available then ask the respondent to give an estimate of the number of teachers absent for the last 5 days when the school was open.
