Judgement always come first with the laws and politics. But theyn't never ask thereself how is the family member are living throught with all this crisis is going on the world. Never determinne the consideration of there effect on the live of that poor child. Then they ask thereself why kids are gang member robbers dilicuents and etc...... We the people are letting them do whatever they come to mind, with our arms wrap and don't act towards this action on our future youth. Don't ask yourself...

No child should go to jail for doing what's right for their family. If they are skipping for pleasure sure reprand them, each case is as individual ad the child!

Kids should not be put in jail as they are missing school to help their family! It's a really sad world we're living in!

I support this girl because she had to work to help her family. However I think the law should only have minor changes in the fact that circumstances like this should be taken into account.

This is horrible law, barbaric and inhuman. You do not punish someone who works hard to support his/her family and also goes to school! On the contrary, this person deserves a reward.

And there I thought jail was for Criminals. If it's a crime to miss school, then it must also be a crime to miss work - should we lock up everyone who takes time off? WHAT A JOKE! Only in the backwards areas of America could something so blatantly ridiculous happen. I'm SO glad I had the good fortune to be born outside of the U.S. Such stupidity absolutely terrifies me!
