Now the school board is sending kids to jail for missing school. I thought the $500.00 fines were bad enough......but now they sent my sister's kid to juvi. How can we STOP this abuse of power from the school system?

I think it is a good idea. These kids who are delinquent need some sort of wake up call. I have a step son who I have been trying to convince my wife to send to the Mountaineer Academy. He is already on probation for truancy and is failing for his third straight year. I would rather see him sent away than have to pay fines.

Something needs to be done about these delinquents so they can be productive citizens.

I agree with you that something has to be done with these children. It is a sad situation and yet many parents want to blame the school boards for the problems, when a good look into the mirror would reveal the true issue.

The school system and and courts have taken parents rights away. Kids are able to do more than we could as kids. As a parent you can't punish your kids like we were punished as kids or you have CPS knocking at your door. I think the kids should be held accountable if they go don't go to school not the parents.

Well when the parents expect the kids to get on the bus......and they leave the house like they are going to school only to miss the bus intentionally and slip back in the house with no one the wiser what is one to do. I throw my hands in the air. I tried to make him get up and go and got punched for my trouble. What did I do, I walked off. I have to work and cannot have the accusation of hitting a minor on me. So I did nothing and will continue to let him screw up. Mountaineer Academy has his name all over it.
