Senate Bill 413: An Act Increasing School Withdrawal Procedures
Senators Moody, Thomas, Weber, Fort, Douglas, Tate
This bill would effectively raise 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 is 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. HSLDA opposed this bill.
