If your child misses too much school, should you be arrested?: Emerge Peoria: "That's what they are doing in Atlanta and surrounding communities...If your child misses too much school, you can get arrested.That's what happened Thursday to two DeKalb County mothers. Cheryl McCoy and Danelle Swanson were led away in cuffs, each charged with educational neglect, after DeKalb..."
No. The next day both parents are required to attend school with their child to "make up" for the absence. Missing enough work or sleep-in time might change their attitude. They don't show for their school day, the following day they can sit in jail.
Yes. Ultimately it's your responsibility as a parent to make sure your kids get to school. If you choose to have kids you should be forced to be responsible for them till you either give them up for adoption or till they move out. There are very few cases where the parent is completely not at fault for how their kids turn out. Most times parents are too permissive or disinterested to put in the effort to teach their children well.
It seems our current State of Techno affairs affords substantially less parental involvement, as students don't have time for parents, and vice versa. America is jobless, an emerging culture of laboring for debt instead of knowledge as wealth has failed miserably. Why is education of children expensive, and why isn't it provided without cost or force as it is in other Countries? Education a priority, gag on that bit of common sense while your next vote is to build armament machines to see the armed, hairless, inked, pierced, doped up parents of our next generation of insanity.
Now, who or what State body should ultimately judge a parents interaction and inter-personal attitude with 'their' children, or vice versa? Do you think children that are spanked become 'normal' adults?
