I'm for it, if it cuts both ways

Miss a parent-teacher meeting? This guy says parents should be charged with a crime, and fined.

I'm only recently back in the school system, but when we were sending all the Sons to school, I never missed a meeting with school staff. Got stood up quite a bit, though. It was a big factor in our leaving the public school system in the first place--just couldn't get teachers to meet with us about what to do with our son. If teachers were charged with the same crime for skipping a meeting, I think I could stand behind it.

It's easy to say parents are not good enough. Every parent knows they're not good enough. But holding teachers accountable? Ain't never gonna happen.
