here is an interesting article about aruba school attendance rules.
wow there are actual fines for non compliance.
my question is for you parents/grandparents..............ever brought your kids to aruba that required an absence from school?
my husband and i are 2 of the ones that have to claim "guilty" although we were never made to feel guilty.
in our defense, our son was an A student.....a brainiac......and always brought work with him and although was marked absent on the record, he did an extraordinary amount of learning when we traveled. we were fortunate that his teachers understood our situation that warranted the absence from school. if he were not a good student, i am sure things would have been very different.
in this day and age when life is so rushed and family life is so precious....i say folks need to do what is right for their family's particular situation.
what are your thoughts?
