I appreciate the research done by PG staff writer Mary Niederberger with regard to truancy rates in Wilkinsburg (“Truancy Reaches Epidemic Levels in Wilkinsburg,” Feb. 22). But, boy, that elephant in the room is sure casting a long shadow! Recent letter writers to this page have commented most thoughtfully about the role of parents in a child’s life. 

While the Wilkinsburg School District fumbles along with all of the sophistication of the Keystone Cops, there are children and teenagers in need of adult guidance and clear direction.
