Appreciates City Alderman Marty Neitzel's Leadership on Truancy Ordinance

Send a link to a friend

To the editor:

I was very pleased to see the outcome of the truancy ordinance issue with the city council. It is great that Alderman Marty Neitzel stepped up to the plate and got involved in working through the process of drafting an ordinance that would give Jean Anderson and her staff another tool to combat truancy in all stages of severity and that addressed some concerns of home-school parents.

I hope that public, private and home-school students alike can appreciate efforts made in the name of education on their behalf.
