Transcription: 
When families move a lot, for example, if they are in the military or their parent's profession requires them to move frequently during their school years. It's really important for parents to plan ahead and think about what they need as their children as they move from school to school. For example, a child may take Algebra in Eighth Grade, but then they move to a school where they take Algebra in Ninth Grade. This leaves some children in taking Algebra twice, unless their parents have been really proactive about making sure that their records are transferred and they can change classes. Alternatively, some kids end up missing prerequisites for college. So if they've never taken Algebra, that may affect their college entrance.
