Wikipedia Meaning and Definition on 'Bunking'
Truancy is any intentional unauthorized absence from compulsory schooling. The term typically describes absences caused by students of their own free will, and usually does not refer to legitimate "excused" absences, such as ones related to medical conditions. The term's exact meaning differs from school to school, and is usually explicitly defined in the school's handbook of policies and procedures. It has no relation to homeschooling, although sometimes parents who practise homeschooling have been charged with this.
It may also refer to students who attend school but do not go to classes.
In some schools, truancy may result in an ineligibility to graduate or to receive credit for class attended, until the time lost to truancy is made up through a combination of detention, fines, or summer school.[See more about Bunking at Dictionary 3.0 Encyclopedia]
