A Bill In Texas…

if signed into law would give parents a Class C misdemeanor and fined up to $500 if they can not provide a legit excuse as to why the missed a parent-teacher conference.

IMO I am not too happy about this idea. Parent-Teacher Conferences are a good thing, but handing out a misdemeanor charge is going a bit too far for me. I can go with fining a parent, but it should be left up to the judge on what is not a proper excuse. I also hope this does not bog down the court system for more important things.
