I personally think its a travesty that they're charging her.

Another Daily Mail article. Ignore or not as you wish.

I read this in the comments. Maybe true. Maybe not.

"Amensis, Indiana, United States, 20 minutes ago

Second hand from friends I grew up with in that town...he's living with a 97 year old family member who can't properly care for him and she didn't want to see the kid go into the foster system. If the "family" cared, they would be raising him, not an elderly family member."

NJ is not representative of the nation. Most elementary schools here and even some of the high schools might have less than 100 kids. No way do they incur the expense of a nurse let alone an RN.

Well less than 100 kids is different. We used to have a few kindergarten only schools that were that small, and they did not have a nurse. But kids in the district who have medical problems (of which there are many in public schools now) would be sent to a school that did have one. I imagine they must have someone in call, kids fall and get cut, many kids now need Ritalin or done other kind of medicine, etc. I canít imagine in todayís litigious climate, any teacher wanting to take the responsibility of tending to a childís cut or determining if heís sick enough to call Mom.

She was charged with insurance fraud. Not sure how I feel about this. She was trying to help a student who clearly needed help.
She is the Superintendent of Elwood Community Schools with 1,725 students.

Does she take note of every student absence and follow up with a home visit?

The district, in partnership with a local rural hospital, maintains a school- based telehealth clinic available for students. It claims to not turn away any student due to a lack of insurance or funds.

^Yes, we've been over that thoroughly several times. She has resigned.
