Interestingly, when adjusting for other variables
School attendance of 40% or more 0.36 (0.23 to 0.56), p<0.0001 Adjusted for other variables: 0.75 (0.44 to 1.28), p=0.28
the protective value of school attendance of 40% or less decreased a lot and was no longer significant.
So forcing a child to school may not make if any benefit for their mental health (at least as measured by the HADS).
