Sounds to me like the super and board members should be charged with educational neglect

By the way your post looks you missed too much school too. Don't you want your kid to be smarter than you?

yes you can be charged for not sending your kid or kids to school.Im not sure what they do when you go to court but missing school they dont take lightly cause thats money the board doesnt get when your child is missing school.Might need to get you a lawyer if they have missed alot,

Just tell them about the other kids who miss a lot but some tacher let them crawl in through the window so they didn't get counted absent. Only some kids seem to get in trouble.

They prob will appoint them a court designated worker. Basically to cover your butt if they won't go to school you call the worker. Basically you could get thirty days in jail

Knox County school system is a joke!! There is a few teachers that is worthy of teaching. At the High School all they do is sit on there phones and computers. It is sad no wonder they are at the bottom of the list with scores.

Send your children to school so they can be taught something... When parents are held accountable for making students attend, turn in homework, studying for tests, and keeping grade averages up....might be better results for our county. Teachers should get on here and complain about how sorry the parents of these kids are! Deduct some money out of their gov check for student performance and see how they like it then. Bet our the scores would go up then! My child has had wonderful teachers in Knox County and is doing very well in school! Take time to care about your child's education instead of making excuses. Encourage them to do well in school and tell them bad grades are not exceptable! Meet with the teacher and find out what u can do to help them!

Some parents are just to sorry to get out of bed an get their kids ready for school.An some parents just let their kids tell them what to do.They let them sit up playing games all night an cant get up for school.An some parents sit up all night playing games an cant get up for their kids.An then they blame the teachers an the school system.I think they should get jail time.
oh yea

Holy run on sentence, Batman! Seriously, is it too much to ask for you to use a punctuation mark or two?

It's just another one of the parents that don't take responsibility for their lack of parenting skills. Blame it on the system and the Teachers. If they let their kids stay home then they should be teaching them something. The parent that started this topic should go to jail if the kids missed so much school that the court is involved.
