uh, say what?

     On Thursday, March 10, 2011 Selina Boertlein, a homeschooling mother here in Illinois, made the following observation on the  homeschool-Illinois e-mail list.

     “I have been homeschooling my daughter for 4 years now. Last week I got a call from a number that I didn’t recognize, so I ignored it. They left a message, so I listened. This is what it said, ‘Mrs. Boertlein, we are calling to let you know that Makenzie will be 30 minutes late getting home from school today and she will be on bus 99 instead of 127. If you have any questions please give us a call.’

     “So, my homeschooled child has a bus number assigned to her. I got to thinking…have they not noticed that she has been absent for 4 years? UGH! I’m sure glad that I know where she is, because obviously the school isn’t paying a whole lot of attention!”

     And they wonder why we have doubts about sending our children to their care!
