No really, the whole event seems like a raw deal for the teen.
It's a bit off topic but years ago(late 1990s) my older cousin was sent a nasty letter filled with threats by his daughter's school. The admin staff informed him in writing he could face arrest
for not having his daughter in school.
My cousin informed the school's principal & staff that the proper medical records & excuses were filed. The school staff made an error with the records.
I told my cousin, if it were me, Id go straight to the local media, the super-intendant & the school board. I'd calmly
explain that if they ever threaten me again then make mistakes, Id file a civil lawsuit.
