Many Italian children attended school here. The children whom were enrolled would often "drop out" as well. Schooling was rarely popular with immigrant parents. Many Italian parents preferred to send their children to work. There they would be disciplined and earn money to contribute to the family's income.

Given active discouragement from many Italian families, the children did poorly in school. They found themselves falling behind their non-Italian classmates, getting left back, and eventually dropping out.
