    Because it is the South. The South and the Southeast are full of degenerate, hypocrite, inbred, right-wing, retarded, ignorant, a-moral bible-thumping, religious bigots.

    Hi, I have a nice home, my spouse and I are married, and our daughter does miss school. So we send her to school with a sick note the next day. Our weal tier friends take off on vacations 10-20 days a year and nothing happens. But this kid is abandoned, living at her bosses house (homeless), and is poor (has to work for food), but this judge tosses her in jail. Look, jail is for criminals, bad people who do bad things. jail is not for homeless honor roll abandoned students who miss class. If a kid misses class put them in detention (a lot). Or how about proving the kid food stamps! And what about a place to live and help. This state is a sick place with a school to prison pipeline that let's rich kids take off on month long vacations but punishes a homeless girl who was late 10 times. This is a sick sick place that has the 2nd worst SAT scores in the nation and the most number of jailed students nationwide.

    It is wrong. As long as her future is secured he should have let her go and referred her to social services. What do you really expect. The US imprisoned more people than nation in the history of the world. Of course their are many cases where good people are jailed.

    Why are you jumping all over the people of Texas because of the actions of one idiot judge? I'm quite sure we could find a miscarriage of justice in the place where you live. Would we lump YOU into one catagory with the idiots too? Not quite fair.

    The JUDGE was a fool, not the people of Texas.

    She missed more than 10 school days without excuse within six months. That's considered truancy under state law.

    In this state, if you're enrolled in a public school, you're required to meet objectives before you can graduate.

    If she felt that work was too much of a priority over school, she should have filled out the paperwork to drop out of school.

    It doesn't matter if she was the freaking valedictorian of her high school. The law still applies to her, regardless of her grades and/or courses. If she's too smart for school, she should have graduated early.

    But as long as she's enrolled in a public high school, she is legally bound to attend classes per state law.
