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!

Maybe they think jail is a better educational system than the current one. If that's the case, then we most definitely need to improve the current system.

If they're going to send kids to jail then they must revamp the jails to accommodate kids education, I'm just saying if their going to do that for one they love giving kid psychotropics medications I'm against that all together...

What is happening in this world things have changed so much. I understand we all need to be educated to have a good job, but at this point this student was just trying to keep food on their table and a roof over their head she wasn't out there hurting any one, and I'm sure that when things would get a little better she would go back to school, it don't matter the age, because it's never too late to make a change.

You'd want a different rule if it was your kid. Put yourself in this picture, what if it were your kid?

I think many comments here have missed the point - that there should not be a law that sends a mature young lady to prison for working and feeding her family, despite the fact that she should have been in school

The system is broken. No child should ever be sent to jail for missing school. Sending a kid to jail is at best treating a symptom of a problem and poorly. The problem that needs solving is why a child is missing school. There are many potential causes to the problem from bullying to economic.
