<quoted text>Ok--maybe if you had both parents in their life except one--they would be led the right way??? Deadbeat Dads---helllloooo??? Get a clue!! Just because you marry the little whore who slept with you doesnt mean you should give up the rights to your kid?? Just a tnought. And while Im at it--do you really think just because they turn 18 and graduate from high school gives you the right to totally financially disown them??? Oh---Karma is wicked and will come back around! Hey--once a cheater and dead beat Dad always one? Do you think you are any different just because you slept with him while he was married???? Hahahahaha! I know for a fact that this cheating man is cheating on your cheap a**! Get used to it honey because once you cheated with him while he was married---uhhh-hes still up to his old tactics!!! Just cant wait till you find out who and when!!!!

I have been a single mother since my child was ten yrs old. He is now in high school and makes straight A's and does not miss school unless absolutly necessary! The child not having a dad in the home is not an excuse for your child to not go to school!!!

I bet if you look up the kids' parents, I'll bet they are the traditional Lincoln county "bad backers". Bet 10:1 the working class people over their don't have this problem with their kids!
Take away their welfare!

It happens in every class of people, parents do not know if the kid is skipping school until the school calls home

This is quite an ignorant question to begin with; what does "no reason" entail? Surely, there is a reason behind every absence even if the reason is that the kid, simply, did not want to go to school. Maybe the kid doesn't want to go to school because he/she is being bullied and the educational system still hasn't discoved a working solution. Maybe the kid is a faithful, "straight A" student and he wanted a "free day" to do something that coincides with the time frame that said child should be in class. What if the parent is a history professor in a prestigious college and doesn't agree with the teachings that the school provides? Does the parent not have the right to teach their own child about a certain subject that results in a few absences? I don't see the positive construction that this thread provides. The question doesn't even meet conclusive parameters. Are the results going to be sent to lawmakers? Did I just waste my time commenting?

Everyone knows how America got involved in WWII; the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor - which is widely taught in schools across America. What the educational system doesn't teach is WHY Japan bombed Pearl Harbor. Ask yourself, "why doesn't the education system teach the reason why Japan attacked Pearl Harbor?" <--- Answer this question and you will figure out why America's educational system is ranked lower than every other 1st World nation. Google is just a few clicks away. This is a much better question than the one presented above because it actually makes people think.
