Yikes! Things are getting crazy in Michigan!
County prosecutor Kym Worthy is trying to get a law passed that would put parents in jail who repeatedly miss their kids’ parent-teacher conferences. His proposal is that if parents don’t attend at least one parent-teacher conference a year they will face three days in prison.
Detroit Council President Pro Tem Gary Brown thinks it’s a great idea.
"It's child abuse when your child is failing in school and you're not involved, because you are strapping that child to a life of poverty," said Brown.
We definitely agree that parents should be more involved in their kids school life, but this seems way overboard!
What do U think?
