Senate Bill 877: Eliminates Option Allowing Parents Not To Send Their 6-Year-Old to School
Sponsors:
Education Committee
Summary:

Current law permits the parent of a child who is 6 years old to choose to wait until the child is 7 to enter school. Among other things, this bill would eliminate that option unless (1) a physician certified that the child should not attend until age 7 or (2) the child had been identified as having a developmental delay. This bill restricts the right of parents to determine when their child is ready for formal instruction.
