So, the other day I watched Forrest Gump for the first time in a long time. I watched it a lot as a kid, but of course back then I didn't really understand 50% of what it was referencing. Anyway, last night, I realized there was another part I'm still not sure I totally "get". When Forrest and Jenny are kids, there's that one day that "Jenny wasn't on the bus to go to school."

Why wasn't she on the bus? Did her dad take her out of school entirely or is it just somehow tied to him being an abuser? Is there something specific I'm missing there?
