Stop prosecuting innocent children

We do not allow bullying in schools. We should not allow adults to bully our children as well. Innocent children as young as 8 years old are being treated like criminals for missing school. Missed school due to illness, medical appointments, vacations and even being sent home by the school. Our county attorney and juvenile judge have scared and bullied children into thinking they can be taken away from their parents and their parents will go to jail for missing school. These children are not criminals and are not old enough to even decide if they go to school or not.  School attendance is very important and I support laws in place to monitor this.  BUT each case is different.  While some parents need this law to make them accountable, young children shouldn't be the ones prosecuted.  Stand up for your child.

      There have been more children prosecuted for missing school. They decided to fight it and now have to go to a jury trial. I want to see the jury of peers they select for this. Keep the signatures coming and thank you for the support!

      I have had 6 children in school who were, at one point or another, all bullied by TEACHERS or ADMIN. I now have 6 grandchildren coming up to school age. I am appalled at this kind of behavior and don't want to see it happen to ANY little person. Shame on them!

      This couldn't be a more breach of trust between parents and this school district. They informed and received approval from them prior to the school district persecuting them and bullying their son.

      Because some day if things like this don't stop the people causing them will have a high price to pay
