Parents to be jailed for not going to parent-teacher conferences

Posted July 9th, 2010 by orion

Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy said that's indicative of a larger issue in Detroit, where the lack of making parents accountable for their children partly is blamed on elevated truancy and dropout rates, as well as a recent rash of violent crimes involving teens.

Worthy has a new idea she hopes will fix the problem: Jail parents for up to three days for repeatedly missing scheduled parent-teacher conferences.

If all you have is a hammer?

This is the classic case of the old proverb: If all you have is a hammer, then everything starts to look like a nail. In this case the prosecutor believes that sending innocent people to jail will somehow make people in to more concerned parents. One might ask why? Of course the article does not address this. It just says that the prosecutor is using her benevolence, government aggression, to help solve a problem. This is really just another tick on the belt of Detroit government. And since the clowns in law enforcement, education, and other government managed to destroy Detroit, they want this put in law so they can destroy more of the state of Michigan. What I really find funny is that none of these ignorant people will address the core issue. That is the evil of "Public School". The best solution is to destroy the public school system and let people sort out their educations according to their own needs and desires.
