Senate Bill 930: Eliminates Option of Not Sending a 6-Year-Old to School
Sponsors:
Education Committee
Summary:

As originally introduced, this bill would have eliminated the option that parents now have not to send a 6-year-old to school. The amended version of this bill would permit a parent to keep a 6-year-old out of school if (1) a physician certifies that the child should not attend school until age 7 or (2) the child has been identified as having a developmental delay.

HSLDA's Position:

This is still a bad bill and should be opposed.
