Parents of Truanting Kids to have Fines Deducted from Benefits

Another excellent proposal:

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/education/9205369/Truancy-fines-must-be-raised-and-deducted-from-benefits.html

A Government advisor, has called for the parents of kids who skip school, to be subjected to increased fines. And these fine are to be deducted from their benefits. As if people are not facing enough hardship already. Many kids are alienated from school cos it bears no relevance to their lives. Pink Floyd and another brick in the wall, you might say.

Pretty disgustingly see through attack on the poor, also in line with the tories one man management approach to schools in which headteachers should be all powerful.

Fucking hell. Do these people know what 60 quid means to a family living on benefits? That's more than the food budget for the week. Disgusting.
