This I seeing as a failing on the teachers side that if one does not attend one or two times, but for a whole term is worrying that the respective teacher is not concerned enough about an individual student. This means this student is behind in that specific subject and now does not have the confidence to attend the class that is needed to carry him/her through life to have a command of English, writing, speaking, comprehension, reasoning etc.
These types of situations need to be remedied.
Thank you for taking the time to read this, a concerned relative.
