Police Catch 425 Students in Campaign Against Truancy

Hats off to Prince George’s County in trying to get these kids off the street and keep them in school (Police Catch 425 Students in Campaign Against Truancy)  But we are missing an important piece:  THE PARENTS!!!!!!!!!

The article states that the General Assembly is composing policy that would would require some students to serve community service projects and/or seek counseling.  But what about the parents?  Some of these kids are off the hook and lost, because they do not have the proper parental controls at home.  Parents need counseling and some form of reprimand as well; depending on the situation of course.  I think this is a start but so much more needs to be included to create comprehensive policy dealing with the many problems facing this County.

I feel like singing Sunshine Anderson’s song: Heard it all Before: District, Pr. George’s Police to Team Up Rash of Killings Along County Line Prompts Renewed Partnership to Fight Crime
