Well, now, that's pretty broad. AS QUOTED, it prevents a student on
Ritalin, a student on antibiotics, a diabetic on injectable insulin, or one
taking aspirin for a headache, or even, one who has just had a tetnaus
boaster, from attending school.
OK, say I can handle the concept.
So the parent either forces the child to go to school and risk expulsion,
or the parent keeps the child home and faces prosecution under the
mandatory attendance laws?
