Isn't it better for the teachers to be able to concentrate on those students who actually need the help instead of having to provide attention to a student like Ms. Tran who apparently knows what she is doing since she is getting good grades?
    It is a waste of money because your average school gets money based off of how many children attend the school. If there are less students attending the school than what is registered then that extra money is not spent wisely because that money is not going towards the students like it should be going towards. The money can't exactly go towards a student if that student isn't there to recieve the benefit from that money.

    As for your online classes bit. Thats kind of irrelevent to this discussion as its obvious this is not happening with Ms. Trans school. And if it is then there are probably ways that they account for it money wise. (such as less prepared food)

    And that shouldn't be how it works. If some other student needs the attention and the money that is paying for that attention more than a better student, then I don't have a problem with that. The money isn't going to waste, it's going to help another, more needing student.

    I was very good at school way back when. I don't require nearly as much attention or help to learn as many other students do. So if a teacher is spending more time with another student, time that should technically be allotted to me due to the money being paid for me, I never had an issue with it because I was smart enough to understand that I didn't need the help.

    Actually to be more accurate schools normally recieve money based off of how many students are registered for school. Not in how many attend. Sorry.

    Yes I do know, it was not done the District Attorney signed off on this and the judge agreed. Moreover, Ms. Tran was arrested in court.

    How you think that it should run and how it does run are two different things. Besides, how in the world would you micro-manage the way that you think it should be done here?

    Exactly, and her missing days can be excused, legally, due to her circumstances. Which would mean that the money would be going to the students that need it the most in the form of teacher help and other programs they are more able to take advantage of because she obviously doesn't need the extra help.

    The district attorney signed off that the summons didn't inform her of her rights. Not that the judge didn't. As to her being arrested in court...so what? She was not arrested until after the judge sentenced her to a night in jail.

    Its not that hard. If someone is making good grades, despite missing a lot of school days, then those should be excused. Obviously they are putting in at least enough effort for them to be able to learn what they need to know.

    You are the one suggesting that every student should is allotted a certain amount of money due to them being registered at school and if they miss too many days, that money is being wasted. I absolutely do not agree.

    If they weren't excuseable though the money would not be going towards the student...but would be wasted. Which is what we were talking about wasn't it? I had thought that we had gotten a bit sidetracked with the whole "truancy law shouldn't be applied to adults".

    The problem then is what is seen as "excusable". That is easily changed and can be determined by the school, the district, or another authority in most cases. The truancy law in question here even allows authority figures to decide if a student's absences should be excused. It only takes a little discretion. The only way money is wasted is if those in charge don't know how to actually apply critical thinking skills to student absences.
