RE: Terminology for unexcused absences.
In California (70's), we _cut_ school. We were _cutting_ class. We
also called it _ditching_. Administrators said we were _truant_. In
some districts, _truancy_ officers went after repeat offenders.
In Utah (then and now), students and administrators call it
_sluffing_. A student may "get a sluff" if s/he is caught out of
Outside of Utah, which states use sluff, sluffed, sluffing, or sluffs?
