Pressure from prosecuting attorney thwarted

Several months into the 2000-2001 school year, the Hot Springs County School District superintendent contacted a Home School Legal Defense Association member family to ensure that they had submitted curriculum, as required by state law. Although the family assured him that they would immediately furnish him with this information, the superintendent wrote a letter to the county prosecuting attorney, informing him that the family might be guilty of violating the compulsory attendance law.

When the prosecutor informed the family that they might be charged with failure to comply with the compulsory attendance law, they immediately called HSLDA. We were able to satisfy the prosecutor with a letter stating that the family had indeed submitted curriculum and were in full compliance with the law. Darren A. Jones
