Parents in the Panhandle may face jail time if their children continue to skip school.
Officials in Escambia County are weighing a tough new penalty that says if children have 10 unexcused absences in 90 calendar days, their parents would be put behind bars.
Officials said children who miss that much school put their entire futures in jeopardy.
Yeah... I'm sure it has no lasting effects on kids to have their parents spend time in prison. I mean, it can't possibly be worse than missing 90 days of school. Right? Right?
Legislators make my head hurt.
