Finding of neglect is not against manifest weight of evidence, where mother, as result of lengthy history of substance abuse and physical and mental illness, was unable to properly care for daughter or consistently take her to school. Mother failed to make alternative arrangements to ensure that child's education was not disrupted, and child missed exorbitant number of school days. Finding of neglectis appropriate where minor is not receiving the proper or necessary support and education as required by law. (HYMAN and MASON, concurring.)
