Mother jailed for not sending her three daughters to school - National News - Independent.ie
In what world is it ok to take a mother away from her children, criminalise her and jail her for not complying with state education? I never thought I would have a use for the word neo-stalinist but here it is. The state owns you it would appear. Would the CCREF not mean now childrens views should be taken into consideration? What do these kids think that some monstrous judge has locked up their Hypochondriac mammy?A MOTHER of three has been jailed for not sending her children to school.
The woman, who was described as "too liberal", kept her three girls at home for colds and flu without any doctors' notes, a court heard.
The children missed 28 days from last September more than a third of the school term. Apart from the illnesses, the Dublin mother, who is in her 30s, alleged that one of the children was being bullied.
But a judge sentenced her to 28 days after being told there was no medical evidence of their illnesses or a bullying complaint.
