Do not prosecute parents for taking children out of school for a holiday

Comment 2nd July 2010

I believe it is very unfair not to allow parents to take their children out of school during term-time and to be made to feel a criminal for doing so. Every child should be allowed 2 weeks out of school a year.

Why does this matter?

It is the poorer families who miss out by having to take their children away in the school holidays only when prices are astronomic and purposely inflated. I believe children learn more especially if they can afford to go abroad to see different cultures, speak a different language etc.than stuck in school. My children are all grown up now but their happier memories are of together as a family on holiday when we could afford it and they learnt far more than within 4 walls of a school building.
