MORE than 150 parents in Erewash have been taken to court for letting their children skip school in the last five years.

The figures, which have been supplied by Derbyshire County Council, show that 153 cases against parents were taken successfully through the court between September 2006 and the end of the 2010/2011 academic year for their child’s persistent absences.

The numbers, which were obtained by the Advertiser through a Freedom of Information request, showed that secondary school pupils were the worst offenders with 130 of the cases involving older pupils’ parents.
