ALABAMA

Early Education Legislation Defeated

At least four compulsory attendance bills were introduced this year in Alabama. Each was designed to extend the required number of years children must attend school either by lowering compulsory attendance age for the primary years or raising it for the high school years. Alabama Christian Home Educators, Home School Legal Defense Association, and many home schoolers expressed their opposition to these bills. Through God's grace each piece of proposed legislation either died in committee or was defeated on the floor. As a result the compulsory attendance requirement in Alabama remains the same: Children must attend school between the ages of seven and sixteen.
