Caddo Parish District Attorney James Stewart talks with 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright and Erin McCarty about his plan to combat truancy, including the possibility of holding parents responsible.

Stewart tells KEEL listeners that his office - and those in supporting roles - will pressure parent to make sure their children are attending school. As the District Attorney said in a recent Times interview, "You may get a knock on your door for a child welfare check if your child is not in school," And, in that article, Stewart added, ""You may get a knock on your door for a child welfare check if your child is not in school."
