How many of these parents take their kids out of school for doc appoinments, and vacations? there are many more teachers workdays now then in the past and there is no excuse to make an appointment during school hours. Vacations? that is why we have no school in summer and we have spring and winter breaks.
So what's the difference-charge the parents whose kids didn't come to school that day-don't take it out on everyone else.

Washington and Colorado solved these problems by legalizing drug use. Really makes you want to do business with folks in those states, doesn't it? I can see it now: 'Dude, I can't complete your order of precision medical instruments, I'm too wasted and have the munchies; I have to go buy some oreos'.
