Closing the "Homeschooling Loophole" in SD
« on: December 28, 2005, 09:04:37 am »
Proposed law change would address truancy loophole

Some parents who are in trouble because their children are truant from school are abusing a state law that allows them to file for home school status, according to a school administrator and a prosecutor in Sioux Falls.

The Sioux Falls School District is considering submitting a proposed change in law to the 2006 Legislature.

Judges have been supportive of making sure kids are in school, instead of out on the streets, she said. Judges also have told parents that they will send their child to school and will overrule on any home-school application, she said.

"That concern is not isolated to Sioux Falls," he said. "There's a small percentage of families that sometimes use the public school exemption as a means to get out of a problem they're in."

So, they're going to prosecute parents who homeschool their children as punishment for truancy.  Well, why are the parents keeping their children out of school in the first place?  Not that I already don't know the answer...
