Public School Police State

I just can't get over this article in The Guardian which reports that 12,000 students were truant in England, and more than half the truants were with their parents. The article goes on to argue that the kids had no good reason to be with their parents and explain how the parents were jeopardizing their children's education.

The government said yesterday it will be keeping up the pressure by ordering further patrols in September. A campaign will also be held at the end of August to warn parents not to take their children on holiday in term time.
