It's imperative that the kids are in school. Even if the children are doing schoolwork at home, it's imperative that they be at school. Which is why I propose we mandate parents report attendance records so that those homeschoolers don't get all truant-y with it by staying um, home from school. Which is at home. Because homeschools are part of the Michigan public education system and reporting homeschool attendance records somehow helps public schools "give the proper attention" to these students so they can "succeed throughout their lives," master 21st century skills and get their own unicorns.
I swear I cannot make this crap up. Ok, I made up the unicorn part. But otherwise it's all true.
