Abolish term time holiday fines and stop criminalising parents

This petition had 103 supporters

As the Supreme Court rules in favour of the government over term time fines I want to start a petition to abolish this criminal act. 

I find it shameful that parents are being criminalised for allowing their children to enjoy their childhood!

We must not let government be the judge and jury on how to raise our children and stop this nonsense of how much a days absence causes enduring harm to their education. In Scotland that have no fines so why do we have then in England? 

I had holidays in term time and I did me no harm. I have a BSc honours in physics and am studying towards a masters is Space science. 

So lets show the truth government that our children's childhood means more than a fine or jail sentence.
