    ok - so now they'll differentiate absences - like we have we have so many days for leave. we have sick leave - personal leave and annual. They're not saying that a doctor's excuse isn't always legit - just that some were abusing them. They'll have a set number of days - once you go over them - then there will be consequences.

    Hmmm, evidently, Arkansas law makers have entirely waaaayyyy too much free time on their hands. The article says, "Leaders say if a student is legitimately sick, parents will have to explain that to administrators." Someone correct me if i'm wrong here, but isn't that what the doctor's notes were intended for?

    I'm hoping this is short lived. They just opened a 55 gallon drum of worms!

    Send your sick child to school? This is not going to end well.

    I think that issue might get pretty ugly, before it's done with.
