Charge parents!

JamaicaObserver.com: "EDUCATION Minister Andrew Holness is advocating for parents who refuse to send their children to school to be arrested and charged.
Holness, who was speaking yesterday at a press conference at his ministry to address back-to-school issues, he said poverty would no longer be accepted as a reason for a child not to attend school, and that adults in charge could face penalties under the Education Act or the Child Care and Protection Act for their children's absence."
