-----------------------------------------------------------------------------  Lately , there have been a lot of truancy cases involving the students from our school and this is worrying the school administrators as well as  the parents.

It is already a disciplinary problem that has been going on  for years.

Many students who play truant are seen in cybercafes and shopping complexes .

I think we should work hand in hand to overcome this problem .Otherwise, it will tarnish  the school image and reputation .

But why do students play truant ?

I think one of its reasons is because of peer influence. Students who are  involved  in this truancy problem  are usually together friends who have discipline problems. They would follow their friends playing truant and having fun after being influenced by their friends .

Moreover, students are also effected by their disinterest in learning . Some students who have low academic performances at school are usually losing their interest in learning And students who are playing truant are  often being scolded or humiliated by their teachers in front of their classmates . Hence their interest to be in classes would be greatly affected.

What is even worse, the truancy cases are coming from those effected by lack of attention from their parents . Some of their parents have to work all day and night to find money for their family and they do not have sufficient time to spend with their children This makes their children to  think that they can do anything they like .

I think stress is also another reason on why truancy happens. Some students who are often being bullied in their schools are  not able to concentrate in their classes  anymore. The problems at school plus those at home will surely bring alot of stresses makes them want to escape from this unruliness.

But what can be done to stop this truancy problem?     

the students have to be monitored by teachers...
