kids and parents being accused of violating truancy laws should have access to due process of law, especially access to legal representation. They should be given the opportunity to have the cases heard by a jury, and made explicitly aware that this is their right. JP courts can order drug tests, levy fines on parents and students, and otherwise seriously interfere in the lives of families. This system needs some serious checks.
