one of my renters as we speak has 2 school age children, one is in high school. Last year she missed 3 months of school, but still went on to the next grade level, yes you heard that right. The dad went to the school and even to the police to get them to try to make her go to school, to no avail. That wouldnt have happened in my home, my dad would have tore my behind up the first day. What happened to truant officers? dont we have them anymore.
Im very concerned about our low scores, im told we are second from the bottom, East St. Louis being dead last.
These kids are our future....
