Colorado--Victory on Compulsory Attendance Bill!

Dear HSLDA members and friends:

Senate Bill 73 was amended on Thursday, April 13, to lower the
increase in the compulsory attendance age from 18 to 17. In addition,
homeschoolers were exempted from both the minimum and maximum
compulsory age requirements--this means there will be no change in the
compulsory attendance requirement for homeschoolers at all.

The compulsory attendance age will change for all homeschoolers that
are under the private school satellite option. Apparently, no private
schools attended the hearing to voice their opposition. The only group
that was successful in being excluded from the compulsory attendance
bill was the homeschoolers who operate under the homeschool law.

Thank you for your efforts in opposing this bill. This is an answer to
prayer--to God be the glory for this victory in the legislature!

Sincerely,


Chris Klicka
HSLDA Senior Counsel

-> Who are the nation's best lobbyists?

We don't know that this has ever been determined; but we do know
that HSLDA's National Center for Home Education is the only
national organization lobbying on behalf of homeschoolers on
Capitol Hill.
