    Teachers marked absent

    "My friend didn't go to school for three days so teacher marked him absent for those days but he had given application for those days so teacher should have marked leaves for those three days"

    "Teachers cannot mark absent for the days, children provide them applications for".

    Please check.

    Re: Teachers marked absent

    They're all poorly written.

    My friend didn't attend school for three days so the teacher marked him as absent. However, he had been given permission for that absence.

    Re: Teachers marked absent

    In the US, we would say "but he had been excused."
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.

    Re: Teachers marked absent

    I note that he hadn't actually been excused or been given permission to be away. The child merely submitted an application, which the teacher might not have received.

    Re: Teachers marked absent

    Would it be correct to say "marked leave for that day"? Actually he submitted leave when he went to school after taking leave because he was sick.

    Could you please check my second sentence as well "teachers cannot mark absent for the days, children provide them applications for"?

    I'm confused by the whole thing. If he didn't go to school, even if he was sick, then he was absent. Are you suggesting that the teacher should only mark students as "absent", when they don't have an excuse? Once a student explains that they were sick, what is the teacher supposed to write? "Absent" simply means "not here/there", it doesn't mean "absent without permission".

    Your second sentence ending "children provide them applications for" is incomprehensible.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Teachers marked absent

    Could you please tell me, what is the correct way of writing it?

    Is it grammatically incorrect?

    We can't answer that because we don't know what you are trying to say.

    Re: Teachers marked absent

    My second sentence "Teachers can't mark absent for the days, children provide them medicals/applications for". Please check this one. Is it grammatical?

    I mean if any child provide any evidence to the teacher that he was sick then teachers cannot mark absent for that day. They will have to use eraser or whitner and remention that the child wasn't absent. Instead of "A" they will write "L".
