Indiana (R) government issues threats to children

Indiana issues threats to parents and children in Indiana who attempt to "opt out" of mandatory testing.

Tells them it will send them to jail if they refuse to allow student testing.

"Parents should be reminded of Indianaís Compulsory School Attendance Laws, Ind. Code 20-33-2. Specifically, section 28 of the compulsory school attendance chapter provides that it is unlawful for a parent to fail, neglect, or refuse to send the parentís child to school for the full term, and section 27 of the statute provides that it is unlawful for a parent to fail to ensure that his/her student attends school as required under the compulsory school attendance chapter and establishes the process of initiating an action against a parent for violation. Finally, section 44 provides that violation of the compulsory school attendance chapter is a Class B Misdemeanor. Any absence by a student on scheduled testing dates for the purpose of avoiding testing constitutes an unexcused absence and may constitute a violation of the compulsory school attendance laws. "

1. Its early and I barely managed to get 4 hours of sleep but how are they issuing threats to children

as your header claims? The law such as it is and assuming I dont need more coffee (always a possibility) seems to threaten the parents not the children.

3. That just doesnt make much sense unless of course the child is the one

in charge making all of their own decisions for themselves and their parents which would make for an interesting type of family relationship.
