Father gets suspended prison sentence after daughter misses school

first_imgAn East Donegal father has avoided prison despite failing to address his daughter’s ongoing absence from school.The man was a handed a 14-day prison sentence, which was suspended by Judge Paul Kelly, who also imposed a fine at Letterkenny District Court. The parents of the girl, who is a fifth year student at a Raphoe secondary school, were charged under the Education and Welfare Act with failing to ensure she attended school.Of the last 38 school days, the teenager was absent for 15 full days.Since the last court sitting, the girl had attended only three full days out of 16, missing six full days. Of the ten days she did attend, she had either arrived late or left early on seven occasions.A previous sitting of Letterkenny District Court heard the girl missed 164 days from a 167-day school year.Judge Kelly said the parents were ‘sticking their head in the sand and allowing the child’s future be stolen from her.’“She has potential, which is the sad thing,” Judge Kelly said.“She got a good Junior Cert, even with a lot of absences.“This is in and out of this court, month after month, and they are doing nothing.”Solicitor Gordon Curley, representing the girl’s father said the whole affair had a ‘devastating effect on the family’.“The girl was adamant that she wanted to come to Court today to say her piece,” Mr Curley said.“She was going to make insinuations that she was not going to go back to school if a jail sentence was imposed.“I would be concerned what jail would do for the family.”The girl’s father was present at the back of the court, but declined the opportunity to address the court.Through his solicitor, he said he ‘never heard tell’ of the services available.Judge Kelly said that imposing a fine had no effect to resolving the matter.“Any time she feels like not going to school, she gets a note to say she is ill,” Judge Kelly said.“The first time we heard of this matter was in May 2015 and it has been here a number of times since.“There are services available and they have spectacularly failed to engage. There were appointments made and he says he doesn’t know about them…I have no other course open to me as I have indicated.“I was dissuaded from imposing a sentence in July and they had a chance to engage genuinely, yet here we are again.”Father gets suspended prison sentence after daughter misses school was last modified: November 12th, 2017 by Staff WriterShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Gordon CurleyJudge Paul KellyLetterkenny District CourtRaphoeSCHOOLlast_img read more

Gold Plated Illusions

first_imgIn keeping with ritual every four years, India’s abysmal performance at the just concluded Olympic Games in Rio de Janiero has led to much hand wringing across the country. Indian athletes won just two medals — one silver and one bronze — and the world’s second most populated country ranked a dismal 67 on the global tally. The number of medals India won dropped by two thirds and the country slipped 12 ranks from the last Olympic Games in London.For all the national uproar, India’s Rio record is par for the course. In the 23 Olympics in which the country has participated since 1920, it has won a total of just 28 medals — averaging roughly one medal per Game.Nevertheless, Indians demonstrate Olympic-sized touchiness on the subject. Author Shoba De was roundly denounced after she mocked the Indian team’s record on Twitter, writing, “Goal of Team India at the Olympics: Rio jao. Selfies lo. Khaali haat wapas aao. (Go to Rio. Take Selfies. Return empty handed) What a waste of money and opportunity.”In response to the national humiliation, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has established a task force to develop a comprehensive action plan for “effective participation” by the country in the Olympic Games in 2020, 2024 and 2028.The national obsession with India’s performance in the Olympics is misdirected. The country’s energies and resources are better channeled toward far greater priorities — alleviating poverty, expanding sanitation services, building infrastructure, etc.To be sure, the country should encourage sports and expand opportunities for its best athletes, and hopefully some of them will become Olympic stars. But directing scarce national resources to winning international medals is a singularly foolhardy indulgence.The Olympics, like all global sports, are a commercial sham. The Games have historically advantaged Western sports and ignored indigenous ones. Rugby and handball make the sports list, but kabaddi and gulli danda don’t. Field hockey, in which India once dominated, has been transformed with a shift to turf, which Indians, unlike their Western counterparts, have a hard time accessing. Crass commercialization of sports has fostered a culture and economics of celebrity, which entirely bypasses developing countries and offers unfair advantages to athletes from rich countries, who are able to leverage their technological and resource advantages.The national focus ought to be not on international performance, but on ensuring the effective utilization of the scarce resources that are directed at sports. Pruning the sports bureaucracy would be a good start. At the Rio Olympics, millions of dollars were squandered on officials and babus with little understanding of sports, who partied at national expense.Indeed, far more embarrassing than the performance of athletes, was the threat by Olympic organizers to revoke the accreditation and access privileges of India’s sports minister Vijay Goel and his entourage for muscling into unaccredited areas and their boorish conduct. Sarah Peterson, Continental Manager for Rio 2016 Organizing Committee wrote: “We have had multiple reports of your Minister for Sports trying to enter accredited areas at venues with unaccredited individuals. When the staff try to explain that this is not allowed, they report that the people with the Minister have become aggressive and rude and sometimes push past our staff.”These are the very people who are now being tasked with strategizing and scripting India’s gold plated illusions for the next decade.
