There are many reasons that a student might miss school. Two reasons that often keep a student from attending are transportation and finances.

When finances are a factor, it can be much more difficult for a person to attend class on a regular basis or even take classes each semester. If money is a problem, then it is usually necessary for the student to decide if work is more necessary than school.
