In Las Vegas, the Clark County Board of School Trustees today voted 6-0 to approve “in concept” to make a driver’s license dependent on attending high school.

If a student doesn’t go to school, according to the proposal, he or she can’t drive. If the teen is deemed a “habitual truant,” his or her parents must go to a form of detention, compulsory “Saturday intervention sessions,” to improve their parenting skills.
