A New York City father is being investigated for “educational neglect” for failing to send his daughter to high school. Daniel Lipsman enrolled his daughter in college after she finished eighth grade at P.S. 187. Now 15, Angela Lipsman has a 3.84 average and enough credits for an AA degree. But she’s considered truant from high school till she turns 16, and she can’t take the GED till she’s 17. By then, she’s likely to have her BA.
“It’s very demoralizing,” said Lipsman, who vowed that he’ll “go to prison before my daughter goes to a city high school.” He’s a retired teacher.
