Tony:  My daughter is ten years old attending a private school in Texas. She has a chronic illness which doctors attribute it to her allergies. She has missed a total of sixteen days of school. Her principal constantly tells us she is in danger of being set back due to her absence. She keeps citing Texas law as her excuse for taking this action. I keep hearing how the attendance laws are aimed at truant students but what about student with valid excuses from doctors.
