Repeal the Excessive Absenteeism Law

The Nebraska Family Forum is asking the Nebraska legislature to do the following during the 2014 session:

REPEAL the current law

REPLACE it with a law that addresses real truancy, defined as being absent without the knowledge or permission of a parent or guardian

REMOVE law enforcement from the process

RESTORE a cooperative relationship between schools, parents, and students—the three parties that should be dealing with attendance issues

Please remember that these are our goals when you are speaking with friends, parents, state senators, and other public officials.
