Kiarre Harris hasn’t seen her two young children in three weeks.
That’s because authorities took the single mother’s elementary school-aged kids away from her and put them in foster care — and after New York’s Buffalo Public School District acknowledged in writing to Harris that it received her letters of intent to homeschool her children.
“I felt that the district was failing my children,” she told WKBW-TV, “and that’s when I made the decision to homeschool.”
Harris showed WKBW the documents she filed at Buffalo City Hall informing the district of her intent to homeschool her children, stamped “received” on Dec. 7, 2016. She also showed the station the letter she received from the school district’s homeschooling coordinator, also dated Dec. 7.
“I spoke directly to the homeschool coordinator and she told me from this point on my children were officially un-enrolled from school,” Harris told WKBW.
But then things got strange.
