Legislative Bill 178 would lower the compulsory school attendance age from 5 years old to 3 years old. This would require parents to place children who are age 3 by September 30 into a school program.
Please contact the Education Committee and give them the following message in your own words:
“I am contacting you to oppose LB 178 to lower the compulsory school attendance age. Lowering the compulsory attendance age does not help students, but rather takes away the rights of parents to act based on the educational needs of their children and places an unnecessary burden on the taxpayers. Please vote against LB 178.”
If you are interested in testifying to the Committee you can provide a written statement that will be included in the official record. Written statements should be submitted to the Committee on Education, Council of the District of Columbia, Suite 119 of the John A. Wilson Building, 1350 Pennsylvania Avenue, N.W., Washington, D.C. 20004 by 5:00 p.m. by Wednesday, December 18, 2013.
