The Conservatives have also criticised a Welsh Government decision to push ahead with plans to fine parents of persistent truants.
Plaid Cymru has criticised Welsh Government plans to impose fines on parents whose children repeatedly play truant as a 'retrograde step.'
The Welsh Government wants to introduce fixed penalty notices for persistent truancy from 1 September.
It has published responses to a consultation which ended in February.
Education Minister Leighton Andrews put forward last November his plan for fines of up to £60 for the parents of children who regularly miss school, rising to £120 if not paid within a month.
