State v. Mrs. E
Filed: April 3, 2000, Houston.
Nature of Case: Mrs. E withdrew her 4th grade son, suffering from school-induced anxiety on February 2, 2000, notifying the school that she would home school until the child's anxiety subsided. In April, she provided a letter of assurance to the school superintendent-indicating that she intended to continue home schooling. The school charged the mother with "thwarting compulsory attendance." Once HSLDA explained to the attendance officer that the child was properly withdrawn from the public school and were being provided a private education, the charges were dismissed.
