Parents can refuse to allow a minor back into the home if the minor originally left the home without their consent and/or the minor creates an unstable living environment for other family members. The parents can petition the court to be relieved of their parental responsibilities or request the minor be placed under the supervision of the court outside of their home. If the minor has a history of leaving home without permission, truancy, domestic violence, or otherwise deemed incorrigible under the state's juvenile statutes, the court will take the action that is best suited for all the involved parties. Some of the actions that the court could take would be, family members would be required to attend counseling and be supervised for a period of time by a state social service agency, the minor could be made a ward of the state and placed with another relative or in a group or foster home or the minor could be declared legally emancipated thereby relieving the parents of any legal or financial obligation.

If you are 15 in Iowa can you move in with your aunt and uncle without your parents' consent if your parents refuse to let you go to school?

A 15-year-old is a minor and therefore cannot move out of their home without parental consent. If your parents truly are refusing to let you go to school, then it needs to be reported, because in Iowa you HAVE to attend school until you're 16. Now, if they're homeschooling you, then you are attending school (although it might not be the school that you want to attend).

Is it right for the school to call the police and have a six year old child arrested for any kind of fighting?

Generally when a minor is in trouble for fighting and they cannot be controlled the school should call the parents in to discuss options. It is the parents responsibility to control their own children. However, if the fighting becomes severe and bodily harm is done the school has the right to call in the police. The minor is not actually arrested such as an adult, but the police will take them into custody; phone the parents and then the if need be the court will decide if the child should remain in the parent's home and it will also provide psychological evaluation.

Does a school have the right to search a students person and personal belongings?

Generally, yes. The state is considered to be "in loco parentis" which is a fancy term for "in place of one's parents," so they can search students who are present on school property as well as their lockers. They have no right to search students who are not on school property. If you're outside the school they can't search you. If you walk onto the property they can, but you do have the right to refuse and leave. Same thing if you get on a school bus, they can search you but you have the right to refuse and leave. It's the same as going to a concert, the place can require you to be searched in order to be admitted to the facility, but you have the right to turn around and leave and refuse a search. Oh, and anything they find is admissible in court. And while they will often have police on hand because in some states they can't arrest you for a misdemeanor offense, if they catch you with anything that it's a felony to possess, even if no police are on campus, they can still legally arrest you because, in every state, anyone can legally arrest someone for a felony committed in their presence, and in some states, for a misdemeanor committed in their presence, even if no police are around.
