Fine the kids not the parents

Fining parents of truants $3000 is only going to cause parents to lie and support their children. Moreover I imagine that the incidence of truancy rises as income falls, so this is a tax on those that can least afford it.

How about fining the kids instead? and then giving them the opportunity to work it off through homework and class attendance?
