New South Wales Premier, Morris Iemma, has announced new measures to ensure children in the State are enrolled and attending school. Parents who fail to either enrol their children, or ensure they attend class, will now face court orders. Jail sentences for uncooperative parents have been introduced as a last resort. See statement from New South Wales Department of Education and Training, April 2008. In Queensland, new guidelines on truancy have been introduced for schools.
