14 Dec: Bryant Measure To Keep Kids In School Receives Final legislative Approval

CAMDEN – A measure sponsored by Senator Wayne R. Bryant would permit municipalities to adopt ordinances making it unlawful for juveniles to be on public streets, or in any public place during school hours received final legislative approval.

“Students need to know that they have no better option than to be in school during school hours,” said Senator Bryant, D-Camden and Gloucester, who serves on the Senate Education Committee. “Most children do not see the full value of an education because their obligations are as limited as their life experiences; we as adults must take a stand and stress the importance of school attendance.”
