Why

Not just a slap on the wrist? This is insane. There should be more freedom of homeschooling in all situations for reasons exactly like this. If your child is being bullied and you cannot prove it otherwise, why leave them in that situation? I understand it is difficult in certain states to make this decision for their children, but do whatever you can to take your child out of this type of situation.

Recording seems borderline questionable and it should not be used as evidence of anything, but to think that there are felony charges being pursued is scary and sad.

Bump

Teachers and judges protect bullies. That's how it went down in NAZI Germany.
