A friend of mine's daughter was lost.. from school.
In NY. there are still some places where there is religious education that is allowed.
My friend's child goes to one of the religious education classes.. The church picks the kids up walks them several blocks to the church and then has the classes and then the kids go back to school and get on the bus's.
Well.. My friend's child didn't leave with the group.. because she had decided she didn't want to go.. But about 15 mins later decided.. She wanted to go.. so she and another girl.. Got their coats.. and left. Walking almost a mile to the church alone.. Through the middle of the town and almost were hit while crossing the street by a SEMI!
Now the mom never knew about any of this till after school when the girl fessed up.
Now the school wants the girl suspended..
And the mom wants to know how the school never noticed that she left AFTER EVERYONE ELSE.. She had decided to stay with her class.. So why didn't the teacher notice.. School is saying they are not at fault..
The mom wants to know..
IS SHE OVER REACTING?
Should the school be held responsible?
And since she has already talked to the principle.. he says they did nothing wrong.. WHO ELSE CAN SHE TALK TO...?
