A proposed Michigan law could allow parents time away from work to take part in their children's school activities without the fear of losing their jobs. Kind of like recess from work. For those without school-age children, the big question is; how fair is that?

The bill, titled The Family Education Leave Act, was put forward by State Sen. Bert Johnson (D-Detroit). We are all aware that parental involvement is a key factor in improving our children's prospects for a successful education, but should employers and co-workers be forced to facilitate the process?
