Bills like this are a potential first step toward lowering the compulsory school attendance age and increasing government involvement in a child's early education. HSLDA opposes expanding compulsory school attendance ages because doing so infringes upon parents’ freedom to make educational decisions for their children. Furthermore, valid research has demonstrated that programs like these are not effective.
