School District Challenges Parental Right

LAKE DALLAS—Because her son was being harassed and was not doing well in his studies, a single mother removed her son from the Lake Dallas Public School. Home schooling enabled the young man to focus on his studies without distraction. Unfortunately, the school district did not recognize the mother's parental right to make this decision and filed truancy charges. After HSLDA attorney Tom Sanders intervened, the district dropped the charges.
