TYLER - The Austin based non-partisian public law group Texas Appleseed is asking why thousands of kids, a lot under the age of ten years old, are getting tickets and court dates for acting up in class. Tyler ISD says they issue the same type of tickets to kids who don't follow the school's code of conduct. The group says in the 2006 - 2007 school year 30,000 tickets were issued alone in 30 different Texas public school districts. If a child gets one, there's up to a $500 fine, along with court costs and/ or community service time.
