This Professor’s Response to a Student’s Absence Because She Didn’t Have Childcare Is Amazing

Being a single mother is tough. It’s probably the toughest job in the world, and we all know that the kids come absolutely first.

When Morgan King, a student at the University of Tennessee and a single mother to daughter Korbyn, was forced to miss class because she didn’t have a babysitter, she sent her professor a note explaining the situation.

King absolutely didn’t expect the response she got, nor did she expect it to go viral!
