Should parents be fined for taking their children on an annual family holiday during term time

From 1st September 2013 a parent will be fined for taking a child out of school during term time for an annual holiday. Is this a breach of human rights?

Parents should not be forced by the Government to pay premium prices for their holidays taken during school holidays.

Parents,in top jobs including police officers, doctors etc should be allowed holidays during school term time.

Government should allow parents to take their children off school for an annual holiday during term time provided it is for no more than 10 days.

Is it not better for a child to see the world gaining cultural experiences etc rather than sitting in a classroom all the time?

Who are going to man our companies if everyone with children has to take their holiday at the same time?
