Of the 33,378 teachers represented in "Teachers' Absenteeism Troubles L.A. District" (May 9), 20,839, or 62.4%, missed seven to nine days, or less. That's less than one day per month. And 5,364 missed no days. Zero! I've been a public schoolteacher since 1969 (in LAUSD since 1973). This year, I've been absent three days. I love my work, but I've seen everything in the classroom change. Students and teachers are now subjected to the most extraordinary distractions imaginable. An occasional "mental health" day can serve everyone.
