    Default School fines parent - with letter full of mistakes

    Hahahahaha it must be something about people in education. "Do as I say, not as I do"....the eternal mantra of the teacher, etc.

    This chap was 'fined' by his son's school for daring to go on holiday (this practice is a scandal in itself), however just look at the state of the letter he was sent.

    Accordingly, he sent it back 'marked'!

    Please note that any pointing out of abuse in this post is both intentional and deserved.

    Anyone that feels the need to swear at me for pointing out abuse is clearly a leftie who’s been bested in an argument and who’s also insulting YOUR intelligence by pointing out the bleeding obvious as if you were too dumb to notice it.

    This has been a public service announcement by Scrotnig. Have a nice abuse-free day.

    Interesting. Who gets the money (if it is paid)?

    Rich people who take their children out of school for a holiday will not begrudge an extra £60.

    What exactly is 'the law' on sending children to school? I know of parents who 'educate at home' and their children don't go to school at all.

    When a child is 'excluded' from school does the school have to pay a fine to the parents?

    The law is designed to stop parents taking kids out of school without reason, but the holiday firms rip everyone off in the holiday times because they know they can.
    By the way, I don't recall seeing you on this forum before - do you fuck on the first date?

    Who wrote the letter, was it Forker?

    Perrin is right about Cameron, on everything else he is wrong.
    Fork Me is a decent type, pity he's such a twat!

    According to the letter you attached, he was invited by the Council, not the school, to pay a "penalty" of £60 to avoid being prosecuted and potentially fined £1,000.
    The law requires the parents or guardians of a registered pupil to ensure the pupil attends. The opt out is of course home schooling, but you can't use that as a temporary get-out because you can't flip back and forth - either you register for school or home. So he broke the law, that much is very clear cut and I have no problem with the facts of that.
    However, demanding that someone give you money to avoid prosecution is blackmail, and capitulating to such a demand is tantamount to bribery. They are threatening to prosecute this person under the Education Act, fair enough, but the Education Act is enforced by the courts, not local politicians.
    And what of the money they're demanding? Where does that go? They're not achieving anything in terms of enforcing the Act, because anyone who can afford to take their child on a six week holiday isn't going to miss sixty quid. All they're doing is demanding unearned money with menaces, like a speed camera.
    If a person is suspected of an offence then then it should be a court of law and no one else that decides what to do about it. Offering cut-price "fines" out of court just encourages more people to pay a small fee for the right to commit the same offence. This is blatant profiteering and is morally indefensible.
    YOU LOST. AGAIN.

    And what about when the teachers go on strike.

    .........hmmmm, they blame it on a new IT printing system..........."round things" it's appalling spelling and typing by a secretary somewhere, earning too much money.

    Yes, my printer makes spelling mistakes too. I type "Dear Sir or Madam, I wish to bring a matter to your urgent attention" and it comes out "Oy, tosspot, what the fuck do you think you're playing at?" It's very distracting.
