Senate Bill 2202: An Act to Lower the Compulsory Attendance Age
Senators Bakke, Freborg, Taylor
Representatives R. Kelsch, L. Meier, Wolf
This bill would lower the compulsory school attendance age from 7 to 6 and make kindergarten mandatory. This means that homeschooling parents would be required to begin complying with the law for home education programs a year earlier than they now do. HSLDA opposes any such expansion of state control over education.
