Truancy policies can catch parents by surprise

Duh...you don't need to be a rocket scientist to realize that the hard working Principals in this district have enough on their plates and better things to do than make frivolous SRS reports. I am familiar enough with the teachers, including the Principal Teacher, at this school to trust their judgement. I'm also not foolish enough to believe every claim some disgruntled parent would convince an eager reporter to print on the front page of the local newspaper. If you think you know the whole story because you read it in the paper, I'm guessing it must be because "Ferris" took too many "days off" from school while he was growing up. Guess that would explain your interest in jumping on the bandwagon with this pseudo-news story to begin with.
School Principals have a tough job. Dealing with unpleasent and difficult parents is probably the worst part of the job....thank goodness most parents are supportive and involved in their schools.

I think you're the one who needs to stand up and support your charges. Shame on you.

No, I am absolutely NOT unbiased. I have 21 years of first hand experience with this school. (3 kids x 7 years each). I think that gives me the credentials to have an educated opinion on this subject. As for manners...what goes around comes around. I have no respect for people who trash the hardworking educators in our school system.
You've earned no respect from me so don't expect any, hotshot.

Child neglect is serious business and while such neglect is(sadly) not that uncommon, seeing people actually flaunting of that behavior is something rather rare and very, very disturbing. Our school system is charged with educating our children. The critical first step in the education process is attendance. If parents don't care about their child's attendance, then that child is very unlikely to be successful in school.
It all starts at home.
