Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns. The answer is generally 'no'--a child must be enrolled in some school, or if being 'home schooled', the local district must review your application and approve the home-schooling request. But simply removing the child from school is not permitted and depending on location may even expose the parent(s) to charges of parental neglect. Sincerely, ***** *****
