    MSE Poll: Should parents be allowed to take kids out of school for a holiday? 11th Apr 17 at 12:16 PM
    Poll started 11 April 2017

    Should parents be allowed to take kids out of school for a holiday?

    The Supreme Court has finally ruled that parents can’t take their children on term-time holidays without risking being fined.

    The case concerned a father who’d refused to pay a fine after he'd taken his six-year-old daughter out of school for a holiday.

    But what do you think? Should parents be allowed to take their kids on holiday during term time? Which of these is CLOSEST to your view?

    Equal playing field
    If these so called 'experts' say it is damaging to take children out of school, why is it not damaging when teachers go on strike or take one of the seemingly ever increasing 'inset' days. Why not an even playing field and make it illegal for teachers to go on strike? After all, these also penalised parents who have to either take of day off work or find someone to care for offspring. As for 'Inset' days; what is all that about. For years we never had them, had better teachers and a far better education system!
