    THIS MAKES ME ILL A PS superintendent in Illinois is harassing HSers with police cars and threats of legal action:

    Christine Fortune told WND that two squad cars showed up at her house in Geneseo, Ill., in Henry County, in late October to deliver a letter demanding that she appear at a “pre-trial” hearing.

    One police cruiser pulled into her driveway, another parked on the street. One policeman then accompanied a truant officer and case worker to her door, while the other police officer waited in his car.

    “I was very angry,” said Fortune, who homeschools her 14-year-old daughter Stephanie. “[My children] were really perplexed why the police were coming for me. It was way overkill for something that was not even a certified, subpoena kind of letter. It was just something they could have popped in the mail.”

    According to the HSLDA, the super is exceeding his authority. HSers in IL don’t have to prove anything to anyone.

    P.S. Sorry about the bad pun; guess I’ve been reading SneakingSuspicions too much.
