Superintendent is Helpless

In the Rockford Register Star, poor superintendent Thompson said that this new reg. on kids will "reduce truancy significantly by getting a lot of the casual truants off the streets."
"The most common reason students skip school, he said, is because no one has the authority to make them attend."

And a side note in this article for homeschoolers in Rockford. Below is what they call protection for homeschoolers. Homeschoolers are no longer free to mingle and mix in Rockford. They have to prove that they are homeschoolers.

Home-schooled students. Police can call parents to check whether a child should
be at home or has permission to be out. If a parent or guardian can't be
reached, the officer can instruct the child to return home and follow up with
the parent the next day.

Interesting logic. No accountability. And kids lose.

Stay Out of Rockford, Homeschoolers!
