My niece mom took her out of public school at the beginning of the year. She was suppose to homeschool her but she didn't do that either. My niece said she hasn't done anything with school this year. Who do I call about this?

It depends how old your niece is and where you live, but this could be considered a Child Protection issue. I know for a fact that schools where I live will report to child protection if a child has been removed from school, or is a non-attender, and they are not getting an education that they are required to get by law. It is a neglect issue. It also depends on whether there is a register for homeschooling where you live, and whether there is some level of accountability around that.

Depending on where you live but it would be the school district or education department.
