EVERY U.S. PARENT should take a gander at this!! Public AND private/ homeschoolers!
A good friend of mine is a doctor with a child enrolled in a private school (I babysit the little girl, who is in kindergarten). As you know parents must receive a note from their doctors in California if their child is to miss school. Truancy laws are strict because no cold in school means no money for that institution. It becomes a big bother for my friend who constantly must write notes for her patients--wasting her time and the parents money! Doctors hate this California law!
