House Bill 1017: An Act Increasing School Withdrawal Proceduress
Representatives Drenner, Ashe, Forster, Benfield, Oliver, Orrock
This bill would have effectively raised the compulsory attendance age from 16 by 18 by requiring a child between his 16th and 18th birthdays to obtain permission from his parents to withdraw from school and to follow a burdensome procedure to withdraw from school. While HSLDA favors parental authority to determine the educational choices for children, the thrust of this bill was to make it so difficult to withdraw from school that the child continues to be subject to the compulsory attendance law for two additional years. This bill was opposed.
