What if the Authorities Call?
A common fear of homeschooling families is that “knock at the door” from a truant officer, a family services agency, or someone else who is in authority.
Chances are it will never happen to you, but there are those rare situations where a nosy neighbor, concerned relative, or vindictive ex-spouse may decide to place a call that will make your life more difficult. Knowing your rights and having a plan ahead of time can ease your mind.
The website below seems to have some good advice on what to do if you have an encounter with the authorities. Please remember it is not a substitute for competent legal advice. Consult a legal services provider or your state homeschooling organization for more specific information.
