I think I'd just go for the GED and be done with it.

So doesn't that mean she is exempt? WTF Judge

you can get fined and jailed for missing school in Houston? WOW! Thats just the stupidest thing i've ever heard.
From what is written in the article, WOW that judge sounds like a real prick. Making an example of some punk who is missing out on school for fun is one thing, but doing it on someone who works not 1, but 2 jobs to support herself and her siblings is another. Talk about kicking someone while they're down.
Im not sure what the laws exactly are, but Laws should only to enforced because it is the right and moral thing to do. The law should NOT be enforced for the sake of enforcing it.
