Well at least Silverman knows how to play hardball. But since she's thrown my top contender off the ballot, I will throw all my support behind Frumin.

WRT the question, this has to be the worst group of responses to any question yet. They're just horrible and make clear that not one of them bothered to study details of the plan...other than what they grabbed from headlines.

At what point in the plan does Catania suggest jail time? Or did he suggest forcing the parents to do community service/volunteer at their child's school. People kill me w/their "sob sad stories" of the child w/the dysfunctional families. Why did not one respondent tackle the "parenting" question? "Parents working hard" is absolutely NOT an answer to why you can't make sure your roque child ain't in school.

Bullying really is a big issue. But Frumin's introduction of it as an item seriously contributing to our truancy problem is ridiculous. If Perry's anecdote really isn't described, then don't present it in this answer because it too is ridiculous. Who in the hell CARES to hear Silverman whine about "kids taking care of sick parents?" I know for a fact I don't care to hear of this excuse-making as an answer. And Zuckerberg's swan song talking about Rose Barris' own problems at home w/her truant brother is just as ridiculous as her response to the proposal. Even SHE says her brother skipped school and is now a ne'er-do-well. Imagine if her mom was held responsible for her poor parenting.

PUHLEEZE!

I'm conceding that I might have missed the "jail" portion of a subsequent Catania proposal but this alarmist stuff is 100%, absolutely, w/o a doubt, trough load of bullcrap.
