Where does a homeless person go to school???

If the mother did not send the child to school, would that not violate some other law?
The mayor sent a message alright....There is something called "the spirt of the law" and there are other laws that may come into effect here...
In fact if all the laws we have governing children are all taken together,

I am thinking that some of them may be at cross porposes, and in fact this mother perhaps should be commended for looking out for the childs welfare IMO

"To make matters worse, the child's babysitter, who provided documentation that said the boy lived at her Norwalk address, was evicted from her public housing unit for her role in his education. McDowell and her son had been bouncing between an acquaintance's home in Bridgeport and a homeless shelter in Norwalk with the boy spending afternoons with the babysitter. The school he attended was in Norwalk School District, which had recently decided to crack down on infiltrators.

Norwalk Mayor Richard Moccia told the Stamford Advocate, "This now sends a message to other parents that may have been living in other towns and registering their kids with phony addresses."

What a sad commentary, nothing like kicking people when they are already down. Then to go after someone (babysitter) b/c they provided some stability for the boy. Why couldn't the school district and the mayor have worked out a solution for this homeless family? Instead, they opted for an overly harsh, traumatizing approach to the situation, harming all in this situation...the homeless mother, child, and the babysitter trying to help them in a bad situation. I hope the citizens in the community step up for these folks and assist them, it would be the right thing to do.
