SCHOOL ATTENDANCES AT RUTHIN. ARE THE PARENTS TO BLAME ? Several cases of irregular attendance by scholars at elementary schools, which were heard at Ruthin Police Court on Monday, go to prove-the contention that in many instances the parents and not the children are to blame for the latters' absence from school. At the previous court a batch of cases was heard, and two or three of them were adjourned in order that the boys might be brought before the bench, the mothers stating that they did their best to send them to school, but that they system- atically played truant. This action by the magistrates had the marvellous and immedi- ate effect of causing the boys to attend school with the most commendable regu- larity! By this simple plan incorigible truants were at once transformed into the most regular attenders! That this sudden change was not due to any action on the part of the boys was amply evident, and it was equally clear that the fear of a penalty had aroused their parents and brought them to do their duty to the children by sending them to school instead of encourag- ing them in staying away. Mr R P Phillips, school attendance officer, prosecuted on behalf of the Ruthin School Board, and Mr Ezra Roberts, clerk to the Board, was also present. The first case was that of Robert Roberta, Crispin Yard, for child Gabriel. When the case was previously before the Court it was stated that the child had only attended 16 times out of 48. Since then the school had been open 30 times and the child had been present 2G times. The Bench imposed a fine of 2s Cd and 5a 6d costs, and the chairman, Rev Chan- cellor Bulkeley Jones, stated that it was quite clear that the statement made on the previous occasion that the boy would not go to school was not true. He pointed out that the Magistrates had the power to send boys who would not attend school to an industrial school, and compel the parents to pay towards its maintenance there, and this they would have to do if parents came there and said they could not get their children to school. In future the boy would have to go to school regularly, and if he came there again they might send him to an industrial school. Susannah Jones, Lon Fawr, was sum- moned in respect of her child, Robert John. In this case the attendances previous to the last court had been 21 out of 48, but since then the boy had been present on every occasion the school was open-30 times. A fine of 2s 6d and 5s Gd costs was also imposed in this case, and similar remarks were made by the Chairman. John Jones, 18, Borthyn, for child Margaret Ellen. This case was adjourned from the last court in order that the parents might have an opportunity of pro- ducing a birth certificate, as it was stated the child was over 13. Mr Ezra Roberts said that even if the parents could prove the child was over 13, she would not be released from school attendance until she was It, as the parents could be summoned under another Act which made that provision. The certificate of birth was not pro- duced, and the Bench thereupon imposed a fine of 2s 6d and 58 6d costs. Mary Edwards, Humphreys'-yard, for child Robert Edwards. In this case the boy had only attended 16 times out of 48, but since the previous court had been present the full number of times. A fine of 2s 6d and 5s 6d costs was also imposed in this case.
