The school wont let my sister follow her kid around and she is not happy!

My nephew has been making poor choices including skipping classes,  full on leaving school early, and just fucking around in school

Well my sister decided the best way to handle it is to escort him to and from every class. The school said no. That visitors are only allowed for official events or for an official purpose. They say following him to class is not an official purpose. That they cant have a visitor walking around campus doing whatever and that she could cause a distraction. They said they can come up with other ways to help him but what she wanted to do was not an option

Well my sister did NOT take the news well. She told the school that she would be contacting a lawyer. Well she did but even the lawyer told her that there wasnt anything she can do. School officials can decide who is on campus and when. 

Well now my sister is trying to reach out to the media and posting about it online anywhere she can, mostly on facebook. Some people have started agreeing with her but most people just tell her to get over herself. 

I understand what she wants to do and why but it isnt an option and I think it is sad that she is taking it this far. I honestly feel that if she put the blame where it should be (on her son) and put as much effort into finding a way to get him to go to class instead of what she is doing to the school... this wouldnt even be an issue. 

SHe wants everyone in the family to support her but I just cant. I am sick of hearing about all of this.

She should have the school have the campus officer exscort him to and from classes. That is what I had the school do to my son last year. Didn't take long until he was behaving and doing what he was suppose to do. Tell her to talk to the school about it.

I can understand why she would want to do it but they said no. She needs to figure something else out 

Quoting jcm3: I would want to do the same thing as she is doing.

There is no campus officer so that isnt an option either.

Yes, that is what I would expect them to say at any high school.

She wants to keep him accountable on the school's time? No. That's not how parenting works. If you want to keep your kid accountable, you take them out of the environment that it's happening in. Take him out of school, make his education your priority, and do it yourself.

If she wants to do it then she needs to pull him out and homeschool.

Is this actually a thing?  I have never heard of a campus officer.  This has to be a huge high school as we don't even consider ours a campus.
