Letters: Absent teachers

My eldest boy started in secondary school in September and since then we have worked out that -- due to absent teachers -- he has missed more than 30 classes.

How can it be that teachers are allowed to get away with this? I have the utmost respect for good teachers, but it seems to me that there are those out there who are milking the system. There are many unemployed teachers out there willing to do their work.
