mom10111 asks:

Do I need to answer why my child was absent from school?

My child was absent from school and I received a call asking me to call the school back to "explain " why "my child" was absent. I feel it isn't their or anyone's business.  What are my rights as a parent? I have also heard parents being told its illegal for their child to be absent for 5 days in a row! I'm about to take my child out of school and home school him. Please help with my question.  Thank you
