 Education is a privilege not a penalty. Parents are responsible for the education of their children. The public school system needs to understand that it is 1 employed by and for the parents, and 2 that it is a tool that the parents may or may not choose to use. Criminal penalties should never be levied because someone chooses not to use a perk. Further breaking families by introducing foster care while parents are jailed, adding to financial stress, in no way increases the student's ability to learn even if physically present in a classroom.
