Governor vetoes compulsory attendance expansion

For the second year in a row, Governor George Pataki vetoed a bill that would increase the state's compulsory attendance age from 16 to 17. In his veto message, Pataki noted that most New York school districts already have the option to locally increase the age to 17. NYS Loving Education at Home, HSLDA, and many home schoolers actively opposed the proposed expansion.
