Homeschool Religious Ed
I am trying to get permission to home school my daughter for CCD. (Catholic Christian Doctrine) Last year I sat in the classroom with her for each class. I would like to work now (Actullay, I can't afford not to)and can no longer do this. I spoke with the office and said was told that the priest does not allow this and was given acceptable reasons for homeschooling (cancer). I asked to speak directly to the priest. He is on vacation so I will have to wait. In the meantime, I am preparing a letter, information etc. for him.
Anyone have any suggestions of what I can say?
Also, is there anyone who can direct me to scientific studies or mainstream-media news stories about food allergic individuals becoming anaphylactic by ways other than eating?
Jessica does not have airborne allergies and doesn't seem to react through touch only (thought I have never tested this theory) But she would definitely react if she were to touch something or put her hands in her mouth or rub her eyes.
I am also interested in scientific studies or news stories (from mainstream media) about delayed reactions.
Basically, I want to show that (a)it is not necessary for food to be served for her to have a reaction and (b)she needs to have someone nearby with an epipen. (I have several articles about people dying because they don't have an epi-pen nearby, unfortunately.)
