Screven County, Georgia – Mother and substitute teacher Julie Giles was arrested this week because her son had too many unexcused absences from public school.

Writing on her Facebook page before turning herself in, Giles said “If anyone feels the need to go public with this feel free to do so….the facts are Sam originally had what they consider 12 unexcused absences, 6 are allowed per year, so he had 6 more than is acceptable, but the doctor reissued 3 excuses that Sam didn’t turn in, so basically I am being arrested for THREE days.”


  1. Humm---feel a little bit sorry for her...but not much.

    There are many and better alternatives to the public crazy house....she and others around the country should try....

    Connections Academy is online "public" school that is FREE to partents in their respective states.

    I've got family in Connections and they are doing great. And the nice thing is they can be "sick" and still go to school---without the worry of truant cops, other sick kids/people, weirdo teachers and other undesireables at the crazy house school.

    This Mother just needs to contact these people and get a great education for her son and skip the crazy government systems.

    1. We homeschoooled and it's basically self taught.
