My fiance is a nurse in the state of Michigan. She has just been threatened with an 'Educatinal Neglect' charge because her daughter's elementary school v.p/principal are for some mercurial reason using a rarely enforced policy that requires a doctor's note to excuse an absence. She has two daughters in that school over nine years and has never had a problem with presenting her own, written excuses for when her daughter was out of school (which was rare).
So, anyway - she is going out of her skull with concern because she has to support her two kids and pay alimony on top of it to a scuzzy ex-husband who pays no child support and gambles away all of the money she spends to pay him every month. So, if she loses her license to a 'Neglect' charge she will suddenly be forced to work at Woolworth's and move into a dump and watch her two beautiful daughters grow into young women in poverty.
These are really the things she is thinking right now because the vice-principal has said patently that if her daughter misses ONE more day of school (excused or not) that she will be charged with Educational Neglect. She says that even a charge of Neglect will mandate that she cannot practice nursing.
Is this all true? What can be done? What should she do?
Thanks for any public or emailed response
