Fining parents doesn't stop truancyFining parents when their children skip school is failing to beat truancy, figures show. The numbers penalised for allowing their kids to bunk off has s

oared but the number missi

ng school has risen too. Nine million days were lost to truancy in 2005 against 11.8 million in 2007. Fines issued rose from 6,000 to 16,500 for the same period. Lib Dem schools spokesman David Laws said: The G

overnments strategy to tackle truancy is failing. A community-wide approach involving parents, poli

ce and welfare officers will be much more effective than the current top-down measures pursued by ministers. Under laws introduced in 2004, parent

s who allow their children to truant face a 50 fine. The Schools Department said: The figures are up because schools are taking a tougher s

tance on weak excuses for absence. Parents are getting the message every

lesson counts.
