Do you pull your child out of school for family vacations?

The Kansas City Star reports on a recent Travel Industry of America poll that found 16 million parents "let children miss school to gain travel experience." We're not talking about a lot of time -- according to the poll, "43 percent (of children) missed only one day and 29 percent missed only two days."

Eleven percent skipped school for skiing trips and other family vacations for more than a week.

Family vacations are great. But school is important. Do you let your child skip school for vacations?
