‘Squeegee kids’ should be in school, not on streets

I am an African American senior citizen who drives on President Street Monday through Friday. I’ve seen a number of potentially dangerous encounters with the “squeegee kids.” No, they haven’t intimidated me. They often harass Caucasians. This really bothers me.

I wonder why many of these school-age kids are not in school. When I was younger, truant officers would make sure my peers and I were in school during school hours. I am really afraid for these kids, as well as drivers. Eventually someone is going to be hurt or possibly killed.
