My sister and her husband have been charged because they've allowed their son to stay home a lot during the school year. Well, they've actually allowed it for the past 3 years. He's in 4th grade, and the school district has filed charges against the parents for keeping him home so much.
He's not a sickly boy, he's fine. He just doesn't always want to go to school, so they just let him stay home. They did it with another of their children, but she's since quit school, so they don't have that one to worry about any more.
But, I was wondering, if anyone out there knows what kind of punishment my sister and her husband could be facing?
My daughter attended school, all the time, so I don't know anything about truancy. Been looking online, but I can't find what I'm really looking for.
Thanks a lot. 🙂
