I recently tested my child's arithmetic and was shocked to find he din't know simple sums and the difference between addition and subtraction.
So,being a good old Irish Mammy,I grabbed him by the ear ,and kept him at the books until he was doing some pages of maths by himself successfully.
Now I kept him home from school that day ,because I needed a good block of time to nag and coerce and teach him .He is adroit at using his siblings ,his Daddy ,his Granny,the domestic routine to disengage from unpleasant tasks.This was important.I needed him to myself.
I was successful.I was very pleased with the result.I wrote the teacher and explained why my child was absent .I wrote I wanted to keep him home,one day weekly ,to tutor him myself.
The teacher told me it was not allowed .
What are my rights here? How many days can a child miss?Who is notified ?
