Petition Response 2

I only got to the end of the second paragraph last time so let's have a look at the rest of the Government dogsbody's response to my petition.

Paragraph 3: We have already scoffed at the negligible number of parents taken action against compared with the number of truants. The rest of the paragraph neatly demonstrates just how many obstacles are put in the way of any action. (It also assumes that the Local Authority will have the slightest interest in getting involved which they rarely do.) The greatest sanction is that the parent might be asked to attend a 'parenting program'. (With no penalty if they don't).

Well that will certainly sort them out!

Paragraph 4: I don't want disruptive pupils in mainstream schools. I want them thrown out and taught in secure units, preferably underground.

Paragraph 5: All schools do indeed have a discipline policy. Unfortunately the children can ignore it with impunity.

Well that's what I think of their response. If I was marking it for a 'dodge the issue' competition, I'd give it an 'A'
