I think that this is a great idea. Truancy does not always start in high school. I am an Early Childhood Education Major about to graduate, and through the last few years of student teaching I have seen truancy start as early as first grade. Often times when parents allow their children to consistantly miss school it leads to them falling behind and loosing intrest in thier education. Often times when older children are missing school they are far behind in their education and often having problems at home. Staying home from school will not help this problem. It is the responcibility of parents to make sure that their child is recieving any extra help that is needed and that their children attend school. Truancy is agianst the law, when parents do not enforce this law they are stealing an education from their children.
