jail is a traumatic experience, children of the united states who have h.s. or college diplomas usually end up in the food industry anyways...

If students have jobs while in school it's on them to inform the school about that. Also, Why should we allow students to intentionally skip school and not be punished. A day in jail, whoo hoo! Keep this up Texas, maybe you can bring back the smart students America is lacking!

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.

I worked at a high school 25 yrs...they have to work to survive...why the punishment...should they be holding up people or stealing..such prejudices...
