The foster parents agree. Yes the ward agrees. Our preadoptive daughter is experiencing severe anxiety at school and we are looking for other options. We proposed homeschooling but my case worker said that there is a Nebraska statute that does not allow wards of the state to be homeschooled. I do not know more info about which statute. I just need to know if it is even possible for her to legally pursue her education with a GED instead or if this is also not possible for a ward of the state of Nebraska. Let me know if you need more info. Thank you
Since her parents do not have any legals rights, according to the state law,who would be the one to allow her to pursue the GED instead of a high school diploma? Her caseworker or someone above her?
I'm sorry that must have been confusing. We would not home school her for the GED. She would be enrolled in the community college adult education program for it. Home school was a previous option that we found out was not possible. Is the GED possible through that route and who would have to give the OK?
