School District Threatens to Report Child

HAMILTON—In response to another anonymous tip of child neglect, the Hamilton Community Consolidated School District threatened to report the son of an HSLDA member family as truant and demanded that he be instructed for five hours per day in all the core subjects. In response, HSLDA explained the law to the school district and pointed out that the 6 year old was not yet of compulsory school age.
