In all fairness... this is Detroit

Maybe they're just too scared to travel in these neighbourhoods...
Detroit parents may get more than detention for missing their child's parent-teacher conference.

Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy is pushing for an ordinance that would allow schools to punish parents who repeatedly miss parent-teacher conferences.

The punishment- up to three days in jail.
Mrs N asks...
"What if the parents are already in jail?"... and "If you can get jailed for missing a meeting... what's the penalty for shooting spitballs at the teacher?"
I'm not sure I wanna know the answer to that last one.


"How about having those parents pick up their social assistance cheques at the principal's office?"
