Your "ex" what?  Ex-wife?  Ex-girlfriend?  Ex-something else?  If you were never married to this woman, was your paternity ever established?  If so, how was it established?  Is there a court order regarding child custody, visitation and support?


Everything else in your post depends on how you answer these questions.


Also, are you sure the mother isn't home-schooling the child?

There are a lot of questions but the school district where the children live undoubtedly has an office of pupil personnel or truancy. Contact them. They may not tell you much as a reporter and if she is homeschooling, that is allowed.
Do you have any sort of court agreement that addresses child custody? Does that order say anything about decisions regarding the child's education? If not, you can file in court to modify the agreement to include such a clause or contempt if there is such a clause and she is ignoring it.
