Zurich court quashes fine for non-attendance of parents meet

It's normal a school will report students if they fail to turn up – but what about parents who fail to attend a parents evening?

An elementary school in Bülach in canton Zurich decided to fine the parents CHF 200 for not going to a parents evening. But a court sided with the grown-ups and said it wasn't mandatory for parents.

The family is from Jamaica – and the parents speak very poor German.

But the court did say it's a good idea if parents do go to the meetings.
