AK: Under proposed law truants could be forced into foster care
« on: February 26, 2007, 10:12:35 am »

Detention, foster care considered for truants

Quote
If the bill passed, it would get the Office of Children's Services involved. A child found to be missing school because of parental neglect would be classified as a "child in need of aid." OCS handles those cases.

"The parent really cannot physically control the child," Bunde said. "The schools cannot keep the child there if they want to run. So what this bill does is try to give the responsible parent another tool if you are dealing with these very, very rebellious children."

The responsible parent?  Or the state...?
