Skipping school in Rotterdam?

In Rotterdam many kids skip school and now they want to try to keep the kids in school by visiting them at home when they're not attending school.

They even want to make the parents pay a fine when their kids are not going to school.

I think that's OK when children are below 12.
But the law states that children above 12 are responsible themselves for going to school. Those who skip school make up their own minds and they skip school without their parents knowing.

So punishing the parents for not knowing seems not to be right.

What do you think?
