The protagonist of the story has many student absences accumulated without justifying it is also very aggressive and annoying to peers, so it is difficult to access. Efforts are made to speak with the family on several occasions without success. The hight school decided to contact social services and refer the case. Following the intervention of social services, the student returns to school sporadically, attempting to integrate in the classroom but comes without any materials. Misbehavior is when you are not motivated, the student is also lack of family support and self-esteem.

Message: We are confronted with similar experiences very often. Sometimes the students drop out from school and choose to get a job. They return in school after several years and attend evening classes. If the family doesn't encourage them to attend school at this age, there is hardly a chance to keep them in school.
