Empty Seats

There are many outside influences that keep kids out of school:

—caring for siblings while parents work to support a lifestyle enabling them to live in expensive Santa Barbara

—staying home with a sick sibling or older relative

—the student actually having a job to support the family

Parent cooperation is necessary and as a retired teacher I resent implications that teachers don’t relate well to students.
