    Honors student jailed for missing class...

    Honor student placed in jail for tardiness and truancy at school | khou.com Houston






    ...because she's working 2 jobs to support her younger sister after their parents abandoned them and still manages to get excellent grades.

    Law - in letter or in spirit?

    The girls is unfortunate, but I cannot blame the judge. They need to accommodate her issues, but that must be done through legislation.

    That's pretty funny considering you can quit going to school in TX at age 16. The judge has no authority to punish her for not going. Her defender must have been a moron.

    Wonder if the school will foot her bills from now on. She can attend school and they can pay her for it.
