Hi neighbours - a teen who refused to go to school has cost his parents after they were charged $50 under the Education Act.
The court heard that over a period of 62 school days, the teen was unjustifiably absent on 38 days, with a further seven classified as justified absence.
What are your thoughts? Should parents be charged if their kids wag school?
