Term-time holiday dad loses court battle

A father has lost his legal challenge against a fine for taking his daughter on an unauthorised term-time holiday.
The Supreme Court ruled against Jon Platt, who had won earlier legal battles against a £120 fine in a case brought by the Isle of Wight council.
He said the decision, over a trip to Florida, meant the “state was taking the rights away from parents”.
Prime Minister Theresa May said the schools decide when and where and what kids learn.
