Minnesota--Bills Introduced to Raise
Compulsory School Attendance Age to 18

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

The Minnesota Legislature has introduced two bills, Senate File 3574
and House File 3769, to raise Minnesota's compulsory school attendance
age from 16 to 18. By requiring that your children attend school for
two additional years, these bills restrict your freedom to direct your
children's upbringing and education. If passed, these bills would
also require two more years of paperwork submission to homeschool.

We are working with the Minnesota Association of Christian Home
Educator's (MACHE) John Tuma, who is in contact with the bills'
sponsors, to defeat this legislation. At this time, no action is
needed, but we will keep you updated as things progress.

Thank you for your support of homeschooling freedom.

Sincerely,

Michael P. Donnelly, Esq.
HSLDA Staff Attorney

-> Will your children's inheritance retain its value?

If you pass on a legacy of freedom, your children and their
children's children will thank you. But freedom is never secure;
it must always be guarded. Membership with HSLDA is an investment
in the future that can be passed on to future generations of
families wanting to teach their children at home.
