The staff of Soundview School is spending more and more of its time taking care of children whose parents do not arrive to pick them up from class on time. As a result, more teachers will have to be hired. The school could, instead, charge parents a nominal fee whenever they fail to arrive to pick their children up on time. This charge would encourage punctual pickup.

The conclusion above depends most strongly on which of the following assumptions?

(A) Parents will simplify their daily schedules in order to arrive at pickup time punctually.

(B) The fee charged for late pickup will not be a significant additional burden to most families that can afford tuition at Soundview School.

(C) Parents will find the late pickup fee more objectionable than a tuition hike that would be necessary to pay for additional staff.

(D) A staff of highly qualified teachers is part of what encourages parents to bring their children to Soundview School.

(E) Parents who have errands to run or other tasks to complete could place their children in dedicated after school daycare programs.
