If you get in trouble for your child being late or absent why arent they charging the school also for doing nothing if a child cuts a class?why is the parent responsible if they got their child to school on time .i have a hs child.and he cut class and I argued with the school.over this.its ridiculous the school should also be held accountable but they dont care because he showed up so they get their funds.

Because you are the parent. You can control your child, they can't. Your child is in high school, he is the one who should be held accountable, yell at him, not the school.

They have security so if a child leaves campus than they should be held accountable.they are being paid to have your child at school.and fyi I have told my student I have also told the school.i wanted my son in the trouble maker school so he cant leave class what so ever and guess what they denied it.

Why are you not holding your child accountable? Security is to keep the school safe - not babysit every child scheming to get out. Furthermore - not all kids who cut class even leave the building!

maybe if you did not rely on the school to be the parent, and you actually did your job as a parent, your kid might be responsable to go to school like a normal kid...instead of wanting it tobe a prison??

Well, you are saying you want the school responsible, so when you lead with that, it doesn't sound that way...



You want your sons school switched bc he is mishandling a conflict with one teacher?

I think they should call you if he leaves without permission and you should deal with it
