In a free country---youngsters are forced to schools? Punish them for not
going? Can't believe the words coming from our follow citizens.This isn't the America of 1776.
Danny,Punish them both. If you don't believe the parents can
influence the students attendance, you never met my father, my uncles, nor me
with my daughters.Detention? Grades? if the kids are truant, how
will this hurt them? All you are driving at is an uneducated workforce. Parents should be parents.
Yes it is about time we punished people for their own transgressions and not for
the "Original Sin" postulated in the parents. Would it
really help to force these nascent criminals into the general school population
to annoy teachers and other students? Somehow I think we are confusing cause
Punish the students, not the parents. Rescind student privileges, impose
detention, or dock their grades for truancy. Even the best parents in the world
can't control their children's actions 24-7.
