Family Fined Vacation School

Why Was a Family Fined for Taking Their Kids on Vacation?

A British couple has been fined 1,800 dollars (approximately) for taking their two kids to Greece for one week during the school year. Their vacation contravened a new British law that forbids missing school for a vacation. I have no issue with pulling your kids out of school for vacation. I think kids learn a lot more from experience than they do from sitting at a desk.
