In Western society the children would move with the parents and attend a school close to where the parents live. I remember my family moved every 1.5 years as my father had a new job offer. And it was not just a few miles it was all over the USA. Alabama, to New Mexico, to New York, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Missouri, and then to Connecticut and I was nine in Connecticut. The parents are not irresponsible, the state should make efforts to allow the children to attend schools close to where their parents live and work.
