Mum fined for taking her daughter out of school to go on holiday

She said it was worth the fine and disruption to her daughter's education.

A mother has been fined after she took her daughter out of school so they could go on holiday.

The mum claims she did nothing wrong by removing her daughter from school.

She also said the holiday was more educational than her school lessons.

According to Hull Live, the mum was fined £60 for taking her daughter out of school.

However, she said it was worth it because her daughter was "educated in the Spanish language and culture" during their holiday.

Her mum claims this is something she never would've been exposed to in a classroom.

The girl's mother Bekki said she travelled during school time because it was more affordable.

She agrees that education is important, but stressed that her family genuinley needed a break after two years of living through a global pandemic.

Unfortunately, they couldn't afford to travel during peak times so they decided it would be best to take the kids out of school.

Bekki shared on Facebook: "She learnt so much about Spanish culture, learnt some Spanish and tried lots of new foods.

"Secondly, the £60 fine didn't come close to the savings I made. I wouldn't have been able to go if not during term time."

Do you agree with the mum? Or was she wrong for taking her daughter out of school?
