An update on the situation in Connecticut concerning the homeschooling mom whose husband was militarily deployed when the problems began:
Hoo Ya! A Victory For A Military Homeschool Family in CT!, 6 July 2007, Consent of the Governed
The DCF Commissioner, Susan Hamilton, send a certified letter to Isabelle Hall-Gustafsen, whose husband had been deployed, saying that DCF has reviewed her file and has decided to reverse their substantiation of the school’s claims of truancy and medical neglect. So the case is now unsubstantiated and the family can breathe a little easier. The news came at the time when SSGT Robert Gustafson, Jr (643rd MP ) returned home from deployment on July 3rd. (I am certain they had a very happy 4th of July!).
Additionally, Commissioner Hamilton has promised to get back to us with plans of implementing the policy changes that NHELD has recommended in order to avoid these types of investigations brought on by false reports by school administrators.
