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.

So instead of incarcerating her and fining her , they need to go and find the ones that are out there stealing and killing and doing other bad things instead of that poor girl that was just trying to make a living for her and her family....

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

A great cause. To put our children in jail is the most absurd thing I have ever heard. How does that help our kids? The only people that it helps is the government as they collect monies off of "housing inmates".

why should be able to put kids in jail? schools are not allowed to disipline kids--parents are not allowed to disipline kids, or parents will be in jail. kids don't stand a chance--because of stupid laws and media.

I think we need proper assessment of how a child learns. Many don't do well under the current system. If we had the resourses to evaluate a childs abilities and cared what actually interested them then you could set a system of basic studies and after that apprenticeships for those who need skills but are likely to leave the main stream education without anything to fall back on. This is why all these on line Universities are raking in the cash and delivering sub standard graduates. High...

This is why all these on line Universities are raking in the cash and delivering sub standard graduates. High school dropouts looking for a condensed form of anything they can use to compete in the job market.
