    Listen up, Detroit parents: If Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy gets her way, you may be serving time in the slammer if you skip your child's parent-teacher conference.

    According to this story in today’s Detroit News, Worthy is making the bold proposal to help call attention to the link between parental involvement and youth crime. Her plan would require parents to attend at least one conference per year or face three days in jail. Sound extreme? Given Detroit’s low graduation rate and ongoing crime problem, the prosecutor hopes her controversial idea will spark new dialogue and get more parents involved by any means necessary.

    But while Worthy’s proposal is meant more as a conversation-starter than a genuine call for incarceration, the plan has garnered its fair share of detractors. A Livonia Public Schools board member called it “the dumbest idea I’ve ever heard in my life,” and the board president of the Detroit Public Schools Board of Education said he doesn’t “necessarily agree we need to be punishing.”

    I think it's a great idea!!
    The People's Republic of Detroit has had Democrat/Socialist rule for 50 years and now the chickens are coming home to roost. Now it's time to live the progressive dream, enjoy............

    It seems the end result of taking away the rights of parents to be parents has back fired.

    Since the parents can't punish the kids, the parents will be punished by the very people that demanded they not punish thier kids.

    Heaven forbid they admit they were wrong.

    Sorry, that's not in the socialist mindset, they are the intellectual elite you know. Just ask them.

    If nothing is wrong, break it, then fix it, then come up with a plan to re-fix your fix of something that wasn't broken to begin with.

    That seems to have been the plan. But I could be wrong.
