So often these days it is suggested that problems in society be solved with fines or fees, but do these really solve anything or just make those who are suffering suffer more? Families with truant children may be so because they are already in poverty, perhaps single parents who can't always watch their children because they are working to feed them. We need to look closer at people's situations and figure out how they can be helped, not systematically punish them.
