This has resulted in many discussions in our home between the girls, my husband and I, into the probability of home-schooling. You see I recently went back to school after being a stay-at-home mom for 23 years. I was accepted into a Physical Therapy program and will graduate in approximately 20 months. As someone who will be looking for a job in the healthcare field, having a criminal record because I chose to take my children to their sisters wedding will result in my never being able to get a job in my field in ANY state since it will surely follow me. Not only would a criminal record prevent me from being employed, it would also prevent me from being a coach to my girls in any city league including the Y. Another one of the things I do because of MY children.
Our kids have gone to Nebraska specifically Millard Public Schools for 14 years, but we are ready to homeschool because I can't afford to have a criminal record because I was only doing what was right for MY children.

I have tried to appeal to the Governors "common sense" that he talks so highly of, but I think I must have read the wrong definition. This law IS going after ALL parents, no matter the reason for the absence and I have trouble finding the common sense in that.
